For most people, the idea of traveling along the ground at more than 180 mph in anything other than a plane preparing for takeoff is nausea-inducing.

Denise Mueller-Korenek, it is fair to say, is not most people. She has broken the Paced Bicycle Land Speed Record -- by reaching an unassisted speed of 183.932 mph.

The remarkable speed means the 45-year-old smashed not only her own world record, but also the long-standing men's record.

"It was a crazy, wild ride to 183.9 mph, but so worth the sacrifice and years of focus on becoming the fastest human on a bicycle in the world," Mueller-Korenek said.
