I’m convinced we can do a lot with a bike, but I’m nut sure I would recommend what Kevin Reza of FDJ did on the descent of the Simplonpass in the 2017 Tour de Suisse. 135,44 km/h on a bike sounds completely insane. It’s for sure a no go for me!
Is saw this quote (People in Flanders likes to race a bike, but not to use a bike) in the newspaper earlier this week. So true! This campagne is part of a series of articles on cycling as a solution to many problems by Tom Ysebaert. See here for more info (dutch only).
Irony oh irony, a bike race in an underground car park… Rather spectacular!
Danish pro cyclist Rasmus Quaade has set a world record on a loaded (the extra weight was 28 kg) cargo bike. He covered the 2 km in an average time of 2 minutes 50 seconds (2:50:35 to be precise). That’s 42,35 km/h!!! (if I know my maths)
