    I've gone 45.5 mph down a respectable 1/2 mile hill...the speed limit is 45 mph, so sometimes I'm able to catch a nice draft off cars :D

    88kph (55mph) as a 16 year old, 52x13 was in a race, fairly long hill but technical and not all that steep. Was sprinting to get across to a break.

    76kph (47.5mph) as a 14 year old 39x13 out training.

    My top speed is 37mph. hard to do in a flat county! (one big hill in the middle)

    My computer has actually recorded 96mph! i wan't going that fast, about 24 actually, it just messed up.

    Think I'll head out to that big hill a bit east and report back.
