It's a gently curving S bend, and you'd have to move into the middle of the left lane, else risk sliding into the guard rail. Did you actually sight the speedo saying 67 kph at that point, or do you think it may have been the descent down Mt Martha? I did my max speed (of 61) down Mt Martha, which is a straight stretch, even though there is a sign saying "Cyclists Slow Down". Says that before Olivers Hill too though. Except, I'm a bit leery of spilling it on an S bend descent, perhaps even in front of a cage, so I was happy descending that at ~ 45 to 50 (near the bottom when I stepped on the pedals as the descent was finishing.
As many have said, yes, 67 is easily doable down Olivers.
Here's an extract from the GPS from Sundays ride...
Impressive gadget you got there peterlip. Is it one of them Garmin 305/705's? I was going to bid for a 305 on eBay but it started off at above my budget.
