World's Fastest Bicyclists (video)

This video. Shows a bit of "behind the scenes" type footage about bicycle land speed records. Also, they talk about aerodynamics a bit (the two very small wheel openings account for about half the drag).

Well, I enjoyed the video.

And here is a short clip a 1-hour speed challenge (53.4 miles in one hour).

I want one of these, but if I did have one, I'd certainly kill myself going over 100mph down a hill. man it would be so much fun though.
