Exceeding the Speed Limit

It's not often I get to exceed the speed limit on my bike. But my training route takes me to a hill that has an 8% grade. When the wind is from the north I can hit the speed limit of 35 MPH on the way down. With a slight tailwind or a clam day I can exceed the speed limit. Today I hit 41.3 MPH. I don't think I'm in danger of being pulled over for speeding, but it sure is a fun ride.

We will call you Eric the Speed Racer! It's fun to go fast.

It's an incredible feeling, isn't it, like being on the edge of something almost beyond your control, but not quite beyond.
