A California Woman Breaks the Bicycle Speed Record

And she was going 184 mph to be exact.

Denise Mueller-Korenek can now officially be called the fastest pedaler on the planet. The 45-year-old from Valley Center, California accomplished the feat in just five miles.  According to Bicycling, she and her driver Shea Holbrook, a seven-time Pirelli World Challenge winner, already held the Guinness World Record for the fastest female motor-paced time at 147.7 mph, a speed they hit using a specially adapted Range Rover in 2016.

“It’s like a dance,” Mueller-Korenek said. “Behind the fairing, I’m constantly adjusting, floating forward and floating back. Shea is doing her own dance, accelerating and decelerating so she doesn’t drop me as I’m floating back or have me hit the car as I’m coming forward. She has to match my stride.”
