A San Diego woman is now the fastest bicyclist in the history after she pedaled an average of 183.9 miles per hour over one mile on Sunday.

The ride took just two minutes, but Denise Mueller-Korenek had been training for it for six years. She broke the old record of 167-mph set in 1995. The ride took place at Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats.

Of course, it wasn’t just any old bicycle that Mueller-Korenek used to break the record. The bike sits behind a fairing, a wind shield that allows the rider to be free from win resistance.
