I got that coming off dartmoor to moretonhampstead.
Saw 53.5 mph down pork hill dartmoor twenty years ago (speedo might not be acurate), Mick F's done close to that same hill and he's got his bus pass
Probably been faster on some hills before LCD speedos, You could go faster but the short steep ones are normally kamakazee terrain
Most of the time if there is no tail wind I think that the hills are not steep or not long enough to overcome the frontal wind pressure.
No brakes off haytor to bovey no wind asistance use'to give me 45 coasting, but last week I hit that on the 18 kg tourer with a panier.(51.5 wind assisted Dartmoor Devil on MTB)
There is a long hill into Ashburton from cold east cross on the dartmoor classic (49.7 on the course somewhere) sportif which would render some speed but another kamakazee hill.(51.7 MTB 2010)
There are a lot of hills that give 50 on a knobbly MTB on dartmoor but over 50 is rare.
Telegraph Hill now I did that once a week in the 80's no speedo, worth a try next time I am over there.
After driving through Gunnislake last month, some evil hills but simply too dangerous for a try.
Dartmoor to Mortenhampstead the big dipper yeh fast hill
Helps if your all up weight is 96 KGs, but that Lidl's pannier is always there
