Going fast is all about the fuel

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

For those allergic to peanuts, nitrous oxide works pretty well too.

Careful, peanut butter Clif bars were recalled because of the Salmonella outbreak. Tainted fuel.
