File under: Useless Bike Trivia
This trivia question was on my son’s tube of Yoplait Go-GURT this morning: What is the fastest speed ever reached going down a snowy hill on a bike? Possible answers were 215 mph, 80 mph, 185 mph, and 132 mph.
Once you ate all the “Rad Raspberry”-flavored yogurt, the tube revealed the answer to be a whopping 132 mph. Unfortunately, neither the Go-GURT website nor Google revealed any more details about bike records set on snowy hills.
NOTE FROM ADAM:
If I'm not mistaken, this was shown on some show like "Sport Disasters." The guy had a little problem with his front wheel when he hit that speed. And if you multiply a small problem times 132... well, I'm sure you can Youtube it. The guy is okay, but he proved why you should ALWAYS wear a helmet. Believe me!
