    A 45-year-old woman from the United States smashed a world speed cycling record that had been set in 1995 by Fred Rompelberg, a male cyclist from the Netherlands.

    Denise Mueller-Korenek is now considered the fastest person ever on a bicycle as she managed to reach a speed of 183.9 mph shattering the long-standing male record of 167 mph that had been set two decades ago.

    To set the record, Mueller-Korenek rode a custom-made bike that was attached to a drag racing car. However, once she was going 100 mph, the cyclist started to move independently.
