45mph last night on a road bike
What's the fastest you've ridden your bicycle?
37 MPH on my old Radford Commence MTB with plastic pedals trying to get quick enough to set a Gatso off
52.9mph (according to the Garmin) on a road bike.
From tonight's commute. (Road bike this time).
According to my GPS, 86.5 mph, on my hardtail in the Peaks I may have left it switched on in the car though me thinks.
I did manage 48mph on my road bike down Billinge Hill last year though.
52.8 on the road bike (GPS) was stuck on 49.9 max for ages then broke 50 twice on the same day in Arran.
Saw 40 on the mtb in the alps heading into les lindarets (I think) but was so uneventful and easy I'm guessing I've been faster on an mtb, nothing to back that up though.
Not sure whether to set faster targets or not as I'm sure it got to my head a few times.
62mph, rigid mtb, semi loaded, A689 heading east towrds the lead mining centre at killhope in weardale.
i had a massive tailwind, dunno how fast it was, maybe 25mph.
14% gradient, long, straight, smoothish bit of road.
i made no attempt to be aero at all, as i didnt think i was going anywhere near that fast, i thought i was doing about 40.
its the steepest sustained gradient i have ridden down.
on the road bike i havent broken 50, best is 49.9mph.
off road, about 31/32mph, although naturally it felt much faster because the track was only about 6 feet wide.
59.5 for me on an old Claud Butler road bike, 20 years ago barrelling down Longridge Fell near Preston. No glasses, helmet or lycra either. Just a very stupid invincible 17 year old who has since grown up and appreciates being alive too much to repeat such pointless antics.
Still gutted after 20 years to not have made 60
