I have road bike and used to ride alot - many of the loops Dalai is referring too - I've only done the Toolangi hill once though (leading into Kinglake) and after being warned about its steepness I paced myself and didn't fine it too bad. The greensborough, Healsville, Toolangi, Kinglake, greensborough ride I thought was close to 140km. I love the kinglake hill as it was my first "real" hill and is always a challenge when you're out with a bunch - great fun when you're fit!

I got to 96km (I think) a number of years ago on thompsons road (i think) Lower Plenty (I think) - I didn't pedal hard until about a third of the way down when I realised I was flying and you max out in the 80s and after that pedalling does no good - I used to have a 53 : 11 - I always thought that if I'd pedalled from the top then 100kph would have been in the bag.

We often do the Hurstbridge - Arthurs Creek - Plenty Rd ride which is a cruisy 80 km

I'm pretty sure my speedo was working fine.
