Some say a spurious reading but it's from Jevington to Wannock and I'm sticking with it.

I've hit 51mph coming down the horseshoe pass into llangollen. Spinning out on the race bike, fully tucked. faster than i would in the car!

51mph down from Wingreen towards Ludwell (Nr Shaftesbury, Dorset), you just have to be brave as there is a left hand bend half way down. Take that at about 40 then peddle like a loon!
All good fun.

Most i managed coming down from a flyover was 45mph pedalling like crazy

But this guy is something else

My top speed is 39.7mph but could def had gone quicker but I didn't know the road. It's definitely a buzz getting the speed up....

As it stands mine is 36.4mph. Thinks I could squeeze a little bit more out of it but that's plenty for now with this weather.

I've done 43mph twice on mountain bikes (on the road). It was rather scary both times.
