Obree and the Land Speed Record

The ingenuity of this man is legendary and he can smash out a cracking good ride too! I admire him so much, as a cyclist, engineer/builder/maker, but most of all for his human spirit. I wish nothing more than for him to have success at his attempt, which is not an easy this to do. Beating the human powered land speed record is going to take a remarkable effort on all fronts. To one of my few heroes; Good luck! Check out more on Graeme here, his interview on humans invent here and Telegraph here.

    You have been awarded a ‘Kreativ Blogger’ Award, even though this is, technically, a website- it’s always updated and full of good stuff and I though a bit of recognition would be nice! Keep up the fabulousness, it is appreciated!

  • The day started off great, a mechanical means I'm getting the bus home.
  • There's a tunnel up ahead, can't believe a train used to run through here. Been past it loads and not noticed this huge tunnel
  • Adam at @cycleexif with his Swinnerton shortly after finishing the ride @eroica.cc @eroicabritannia #eroica #eroicabritannia
  • Off for a long slow ride tomorrow. Will be going through some tunnels and need a light, decisions! Can't beat the little volt 300 on the right. The 1200 is brighter than a light house.
  • Climbing at Eroica. What a ride @eroica.cc @eroicabritannia #eroica #eroicabritannia
