There are two speed displays I ride past regularly. The first is on Evans Bay Parade by NIWA, and the second is on the downhill on Crawford Road into Kilbirnie. If I’m lucky with my timing and there’s no car zooming past behind me, the sensor will display my speed. I love this. Needless to say my highest speeds are whizzing down Crawford Road, when I think I’ve hit 38kph. I’m sure I could go faster, but I’m too much of a scaredycat.
Recently I tried a couple of sprints past the Evans Bay Parade sensor. The photographer (my other half) was trying to get to grips with my smartphone camera, and didn’t quite manage to catch me and my speed in the same frame.
My speed, although I am nowhere to be seen…….
Not my speed, sadly.
