170 mph on a bicycle? Is this woman nuts? Nope! Denise Mueller-Korenek shattered the world record for the fastest bicycle ride of all time!
I remember reading about this story in a book called Maximum Overload for Cyclists. To reach 183.9 mph, Denise had to be capable of applying an insane amount of power to the pedals and keep it going for a good amount of time. The strength training outline in the book was a big factor to her success.
