Will Snobby respect this?

A Canadian set a new world record for speed on a bicycle.  And it was a recumbent. I’m not sure how BSNYC will react to this troubling news.  But a big congrats to Sam Whittingham for pedalling his way to 132.671km/h. I once broke the 42km mark heading down a hill and almost lost my breakfast.

Everyone dumps on recumbents, and I often feel the need to suggest their riders “get a real bike” when they lounge past me, but perhaps each and every lazy cyclist is a speed demon in training.  Or maybe they’re just waiting for us to dismount so that they can take us out at the knees.  Read the whole story here.
