48.9 mph offroad down Drum mountain
Lowey overtook me due to greater massyodaMember
60 point something on the road bike on the way to Hawes from Fleet Moss,(so happy to have past 60 I forgot what the decimal place was) done it more than once but first time was on the Etape du Dales two years ago.Posted 5 years ago
If I had the bottle to pedal it could be faster, just sprinting off the top and tucking in achieved this, bigger ring and massive cajones could well see 70+ but certainly not by me and not without a set of leathers and a full face lid.teamhurtmoreSubscriber
So fast that the guys I passed couldn’t believe that my bike wasn’t red.
(actually descending Dunmail Raise and Kirsktone in a tri suit! Against that felt a bit worried on the stoney descents at Swinley the other day. “leave the brakes, don’t skid, don’t fall of here etc….”)Posted 5 years agojamesoSubscriber
Less of the figures and more ‘where?’ I know what 50 feels like as it’s not hard to do 45-50 locally, yet the upper section of the south side of the Iseran was speed like I’ve never felt before despite plenty of alpine riding. Had nothing to measure speed with but it had me reaching for the brakes despite no need for it, simply got scary-fast very quickly. Awesomely fast bit of road.Posted 5 years agoJunkyardMember
That’s about as fast as I can do on 95% of the chilterns roads.
It is bowling green smooth [ but it is technically a mountain] and there is nothing there to let you know your actual speed [ trees or the like] We only realised how fast we were going when we started to brake at the end and checked the GPS.Posted 5 years ago
Rarely get above 30 mph and rarely above 50 mph on the road on the road bikeCaptJonMember
40mph on the flat on my mountain bike when i was 17
50mph going down a hill on my road bike – left my balls at the top so was using the breaks at that point.

My Cateye Cosmos 2 computer once showed a max of 458mph once. Christ knows what was causing that kind of malfunction…? Any guesses?
Something bridging the sensors. Rub them on some mental to see big numbers.Posted 5 years ago
