At the risk of starting a hazardous situation .... I 'll proceed with caution. The trail is 2 miles long, going 10 mph average speed would mean completing the trail in 12 minutes. That being said, mathematically speaking, I would guess that I could ride that trial in 9 -12 minutes. One day I will satisfy my curiosity and time myself on that sucker. Only ride at your limits.
I held back up in the mountains this past weekend because I didn't feel comfortable allowing gravity to take completely over. Doing a road ride, I maxed at 38 mph while the other riders were doing 48 -52 mph. I wussed out and applied brake pressure to control my speed. I am not an experienced roadie and I am not completely dialed in on my road bike. I have never gone that fast, I have never used my brakes going that fast, I have never had to steer the bike going that fast, so there was brain power processing lots of info as I was bombing the downhills and I played it safe and backed off. That being said, I stayed within my limits and I am here to write about it. I have read that a roadie was killed up there last weekend going too fast down an infamous hill that was part of the Tour deGeorgia and could not control a corner, losing his life.
Later in my ride two of the guys were pushing each other on the last downhill, going into a sharp corner, they both were out of control. As they negotiated the turn at 30 mph, their back tires were slipping out from under them and they ended up sliding sideways through the corner off the road. One ran off the road, staying up right, the other slid through the corner, off the road, crashing into a ditch and fortunately ending up in the ditch and missing trees. However, if there would have been an oncoming vehicle around this blind bend, they both had no control to avoid the situation. They were lucky to walk away unhurt. For me, it was a thrill going 38 mph. Having witnessed part of it, it looked just like the crashes on TV!!!
