Would have been more if it wasn't for the drag from that computer taking off a few MPH's :D

Cateye Strada much faster :)

Brave on single pivot brakes, reminds me of my youth LOL

This hill has no run out at the bottom so I go down very slowly.

Before anyone mentions that I am not wearing a helmet, If things go wrong I jump off the back. So its my bottom that needs extra padding.
