We cover a lot of speed records in the outdoor space here at the Adventure Blog, but this one just might be the most impressive yet. This past weekend, while I was off riding a bike in Colorado, a cyclist was busy setting a new land speed record, hitting a mind-blowing 183.932 mph (296 km/h) on her bike.
Denise Mueller-Korenek made her record setting run on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, riding a bike designed to withstand the challenges of traveling at such speeds. To do that, it has specially reinforced tires and uses motorcycle rims, not to mention a custom made frame built to add additional stability and balance.
