Default Re: 40 MPH Club

If you look up Battle Mountain it's an almost perfectly flat piece of road, despite the name. They hold the human powered speed trials there. The fastest are hitting right at 80mph and a good strong male sprinter puts out about 1/2 a horsepower as measured on similar dyno's that bikes are measured on. I'm not sure what you would get if you put a well built China Girls in one of those streamliners. Let's just say fast enough that passing tech would get really tough.
