Congratulations to Graeme Obree on his World Record HPV cycle run….


Yeay!! Well done Graeme!

Graeme Obree has set a new world record for riding in the prone (face down) position, reaching the speed of 56.62mph (91km/h) in his home made bike, that he has named “Beastie”

Once again Graeme Obree has defied the conventional means of achieving things in favour of creating things from scratch in his own back yard. This time, he was competing in the World Human Speed Championships at Battle Mountain, Nevada.

The revolutionary aspects of thhe Beastie were the face down position of the human inside it, and the fact that Obree was not pedalling, but instead operating a couple of push-pull levers with his feet.

A superb achievement!
