184 mph on a bike

I've just been reading an article in Octane magazine about a successful attempt on the world cycling speed record during which Denise Mueller-Korenek raised to record to 183.932mph/296.01kph.

The writer of the article states that "Mueller-Korenek knew it would be practically impossible to accelerate up to that speed just by pedalling".

Well there you are , I never realised that.

The unpaced records are a little more impressive...

M 144.17 km/h (89.58 mph)
F 121.81 km/h (75.69 mph)
