Beat 35mph (56kph)

On my cycle in this morning, I was finally able to beat 35mph coming down the hill on Liberty. My recorded speed was 35.4mph, but I could swear that I saw a 36mph reading when I glanced down at the Garmin on my wrist. (If I was going 36mph, then it wasn't for a long enough interval to be recorded...)

Now what? 40mph? At 35mph, I was already encountering aerodynamics issues that made continued acceleration difficult. I suppose I might be able to do it if I removed my panniers, my front rack, and change my handlebars to something that would get my torso lower...

But... YAY!
