The Chainlink

26mph.  I was on Sheffeld near Addison. I had a tail wind. It's a little downhill grade.  By the time I hit the empty intersection I was wiping tears away from the wind and focusing on holding the bike steady.

30.4mph, up Milwaukee

45mph descending Mt Lemmon...

On the flats probably around 32mph solo.

20 mph downhill some slope I don't recall

I think I have hit 40-41 on both a steep hill descent in southern Indiana and a shallow sort of "false flat" on a large fast group ride on Greenbay Rd...That probably had a tailwind. I've never been able to ride in the mountains. I also apparently hit 37mph with a tailwind in the final sprint of a race a couple weeks ago. How you fail to podium a Cat 5 race with a 37mph sprint is beyond me but I managed to do so.

:D :D :D

you racing tomorrow?

I used to have a cycling computer, IKU maybe, that stopped at forty and would mark the high speed until erased. I've gotten to the bottom of descents and have found it pinned at 40.

I never figured out if it stopped recording at 40 or if it stopped me going any faster than 40. 

Memory is a little fuzzy but I recall doing >40 mph downhill on the way into Madison, WI in the company of awesome folk > 4 years ago.  Fair notice: it wasn't I who had the cycling computer.
