Speed with Guy Martin, what a show. This is Guy Martin piloting a pedal powered air balloon made with a Reynolds tubed frame designed and built by Jason Rourke. Jason previously built the bike for Guy’s 100mph speed attempt in a previous series of the show. Speed with Guy Martin on Channel 4 has to be one of the best tv shows around, remember the wall of death from earlier this year? The channel crossing episode should be on the latest series, let’s hope he makes it across.
Watch the show on Channel 4 this Sunday 25th Sept 7.30pm where Guy attempts to become the first person to cross the English Channel in a human-powered airship, pedalling a bike suspended from a helium-filled balloon as big as a bus.
