    63km/h, suprisingly it was on a flat road with just a little tailwind... Not many big hills around here!

    just a touch over 49 mph. thrilling for a flatlander like me.

    and, no.... this shouldn't be moved. we need to know how fast Foo Nation is, not one of the 'real' cycling forums!

    51.8 MPH. I forgot to zip up my jersey so higher speed was possible that day. Oh well.

    Just imagine how fast you could have gone if you were in the big ring at that time!!!

    Nope, I really did it. If I remember right it was a Cinzano truck. Go figure.

    lol speaking of mopeds...

    Saturday I went and met up with a LAF Livestrong training ride, but it was too rainy, so they cancelled the ride. Enough of us were standing around, so went and rode anyway. A very fast 24 miler. Go figure, it's raining so let's do a nice hard tempo ride

    Anyhoo, on the way back I'm in front of my group, and a kid pulls out in front of me on a moped. I dial it up to about 281 watts and pull right onto his back wheel. Right when he hits the brakes to turn right. I lock up my rear wheel on the slick pavement and fishtail, almost going down, totally crapping my bibs, and to the laughter of the folks behind me. Moral of the story? I need better tires!

    Something like 60 mph, uphill, into a 30 mph headwind, towing a dumptruck full of blackholes.

    I caught a couple of glances of my computer coming back down a long steep stretch off the backside of Mt. Rainier and it read around 65MPH. I didn't spend a whole lot of time looking at it though.


    However, if you want to really go fast, just simply ride over a few traffic loop detectors...



    And yeah... just imagine how fast I could have gone had I been in the big-ring and small cog.

    36.8 mph on a downhill near my house. I was riding a hybrid with a suspension fork. Some day I need to ride the route backwards as I use the biggest hills for climbing.

    No, just really steep downhills. Mine's at the top of Mt Baldy, where the final 1000 feet or so of climbing is at about 15% grade. You hit that at about 15 MPH on the way down, and you pedal for just a few seconds before letting gravity take over and just tucking as aerodynamic as possible. 60 MPH probably would be doable there if it weren't for a campground a little ways down the road, with lots of cars and pedestrians on the side of the road just a few hundred feet past the really steep section. So after about 1000 feet, gravity is still pulling you faster--it's still over 10% grade--but you get hard on the brakes to avoid the risk of running into any cars or pedestrians.
