Top speed down Robert E Lee in Austin?
 
My smart phone app said I almost hit 50 MPH down that hill. Starting to doubt its veracity. Anyone think that's unrealistic for that hill?

Thanks.

I've found faster hills than that in Dallas so 50mph is not unreasonable in Austin.

Well, here is that hill on Strava, though it also covers a long flat stretch at the end.

I'd say 50 mph isn't out of the question. I certainly end up riding my brakes all the way down, and that's probably at 30 mph or so.

35+ mph makes me nervous.
