Well done Beverley and Kirk!
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.
At the moment they are testing a new braking system using a parachute, at Elvington airport just south of York. There was an article on ITV about it, shown on July 3rd.
