Thread: For bike racers, how fast have you cycled?

  1. #1

    Default For bike racers, how fast have you cycled?

    AS above, for those have cyclometers attached to the bikes, what is your fastest speed, be it in any terrain? Off course downslope would help you much.

    Let me start,

    49 kmh, Woodlands road, beside the Bukit Timah Plaza.

    102kph from my GPS receiver, which I think is more accurate the any meter attached to bike. Was cycling along coast rd in my racing bike.

    A calibrated bike speedo is much much more accurate that a GPS speedo. In fact, even a not-so calibrated bike meter is more accurate. The GPS reports speed 'after-the-fact', based on displacement calculations per unit time. It is also unable to track the correct speed around corners unless the GPS sampling rate is extremely high. GPS tracks at 'a-few-times-per-second', the bike meter tracks per wheel revolution.

    Back in 1986 I did 80 kmh down Fidelio Street. The ambulance must have hit 90 kmh bringing me to SGH. I wouldn't know - I was unconscious. Apparently, before I passed out, I told the passerby that a dog had run out in front of me. I don't remember any of this. Cracked skull (temporal bone), permanent partial deafness right ear.

    Nowadays I cycle more sedately. Still no helmet, though.

    Default Why not we share abt our crashes?

    there is a saying.. there are 2 types of bikers. One type is those that haven crash b4 and the other type is crash b4
