Well done Beverley and Kirk!
Attempt on Cycle Speed Record
In a History Society Lecture in Audlem earlier in the year, the audience were shown, among other things, a bicycle which is being ridden in an attempt on the cycling world speed record. The bike had already broken the European record with a speed of just under 150mph. The bike, dubbed the "Silver Eagle" was also on show at the recent "Gathering on the Green" in Hankelow.
On the 18th August the bike (and Neil Campbell, the rider) achieved a new World Record for men of 174.339 mph. There is a BBC News report on this amazing achievement.
The machine was built by Andrew Jones ("AJ"), who is the son of Hankelow residents Ann and Ian Jones. His cycle-building business, Moss bikes, is based in Wybunbury.
Recently they were 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.
