The Wife and I were having a conversation the other day that I thought would be interesting to share. I was telling her that I recently rode my bike and topped my speed out at 38.7 mph. This was a fluke speed, because there was a pretty good wind at my back, and I was going at a net downhill.
|There's a little peak on the right...38.7 mph!|
This conversation somehow turned into how fast the record speed is for a bicycle. I said I thought it was 100 mph, and the Wife said that was impossible. Well, here's a video that I found of the guy who actually set the world record:
I'm not 100% sure that this is still the world record, but either way, this guy went over 82 mph! That's pretty darn fast. So maybe I was wrong by saying that the top speed was 100 mph, but I wasn't too far off, and I'm sure that these guys will be reaching the triple digits some day!
