Eighty one

Eighty one miles an hours an hour on a bicycle is just plain fast.

Long winters make cyclists do crazy things. Sometime in early January, I decided to take a shot at a world record riding a streamlined human powered vehicle — a recumbent bicycle with a carbon fiber shell.

I’ll be aiming for the flying 200-meter world record, which is currently held by Canadian rider Sam Whittingham with a speed of 81 mph flat. That’s right, 81 mph on a bike, on flat ground.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA
