She's Going to Frame Her Speeding Ticket
A woman in Scottsdale, Arizona -- Grace Picket -- was recently clocked going 68 mph in a 45 mph zone... on her bike!
“Our house is pretty far up in the hills”, said Picket. “I like to bomb down the big hills to try and keep my average speed up. They just caught me near the bottom of the hill and there was no way I could slow down enough not to get caught”.

Apparently, as is typical for most cyclists, she didn't have her driver's license with her at the time. So the police officer took her (and her bike) down to the station where she awaited her husband bringing the license.
Howard's ridden down very steep and straight hills before, and even with a slight tailwind, could only get 'er up to 60.6 mph. So 68 sounds a bit challenging and scary even to me!
Way to go Grace!
