Denise Mueller-Korenek is an American cyclist. She holds the world record for paced bicycle land speed and is considered “the fastest cyclist on earth”. She set the record on September 16, 2018, at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, by traveling an average of 183.932 mph on a custom-built carbon KHS bicycle behind a custom-built vehicle to minimize air resistance. The previous record, 167 miles per hour, was set in 1995 by Dutchman Fred Rompelberg. Two years earlier, Denise set the women’s bicycle land speed record, pedaling 147.7 mph. Denise is the first and only woman in history to hold the world record, which was first established in 1899.
