Re: Bicycling as sailing

We have a prevailing SSE wind that in the afternoon is easily 20+ mph. Years ago when the "Tour of Texas" was going on I got to watch the 7-11 team time trial the twenty miles from the airstation to downtown. I think terminal speed on a bike is around 65 mph and I'll bet they were doing all of that on that day. In the follow car it was fast!
