ITS FRIDAY: SplinterBike creates new world record

 

The BBC is reporting that the entirely wooden bike built by Michael Thompson from Norfolk and ridden by triathlete James Tully has set a new record for a wood bicycle of 11.25mph (18.1kph). The record was set at the Quibell Park Velodrome in Scunthorpe, yesterday (Thursday) and was witnessed by officials from the Land Speed Records Club. There is more details at Road.cc on this attempt and a video of the attempt is below. Anyone for a wooden tri-bike?
