An English team planning on an attempt at the human powered speed record.

Looks like they are at the very early stages, probably most will graduate before anything turns a wheel.

They have been in touch by email... Looking to contact Miles but I don't know if they have yet.

I've been in correspondence, too: one of the team members is the son of a former colleague. Suggested they contact Mssrs Harrington and Woolrich for the lowdown on how the Battle Mountain event works.

Hello,

We are looking for a recumbent bicycle for ULVTeam to play with. Preferably we are after a low rider. Does anyone have one for sale or know where we can purchase one from? Not much on EBay atm.

Thanks,

Pat

The last one I saw on ebay was this Optima Baron - it might be worth getting in touch with the vendor to check if he actually sold it: ebay item # 191068390820
I've got a saved search on ebay and lowracers are coming up roughly one every 6 weeks or so.

If you can get access to a track or runway and you've got a competent rider, I'll bring my Nocom across - it'll be interesting for you to see just how much effort is required to get to 35mph on an unfaired lowracer...

Bit of a long shot but you could try phoning Mike Burrows, he could have something hidden away in his workshop.

Well, I have a new bike so I'm planning on selling my Jester. I haven't gotten around to putting it up  for sale officially, but it will be going soon. Barring a veto from SHMBO, I'll be coming to Hillingdon on April 13th, so I can bring it along if you're interested. Other than that I don't think I'll be crossing the channel before the summer, but there are some interesting races coming up over here (e. g. May 25th Zolder race circuit!!!).

Regards,
Filip
