  • Attempt on Cycle Speed Record

    In a recent History Society Lecture in Audlem, the audience were shown, among other things, a bicycle which is being ridden in an attempt on the cycling world speed record. The bike has already broken the European record with a speed of just under 150mph.

    The machine was built by Andrew Jones ("AJ"), who is the son of Hankelow residents Anne and Ian Jones. His cycle-building business, Moss bikes, is based in Wybunbury.

    There are some vides online which show the bike. Here is a Porsche video of the 149 mph run, and here is a video about the design of the bike.

    Tom Hassall was recently on television again - here's a link to an article on the Audlem website.
