  •  I have been (6+ / 0-)

    41 mph on a bicycle... going down a mountain with full panniers (rear).

    The scary part was looking ahead at the 15 mph switchback about 1/2 a mile ahead, and realizing my brakes weren't good enough to slow a 215 pound rider on a 29 pound bike carrying 45 pounds of gear.

    Wore out the front brakes, the rear brakes, and the bottom of my shoes.

    I've been well over 150 mph in racecars; that's easy... they're built to go fast.

    Enagaged activism wins elections. 100 million words on liberal/progressive websites gets beat by one new GOP voter casting their vote.
