They’re off at the hu­man pow­ered ve­hi­cle races

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

RE­CUM­BENT but pow­er­ful, the rid­ers of the Bri­tish Hu­man Pow­ered Ve­hi­cle Club took to Hilling­don Cy­cle Track.

Man, woman and ma­chine were in per­fect har­mony for a se­ries of races at Minet Park, off Spring­field Road, in Hayes on Sun­day.

Sport­ing ex­otic names such as Car­rera Vir­tu­oso, Beano, Rat­tys­nake and Rap­to­bike, the in­ge­nious – some might say wacky – ma­chines were put through their not in­con­sid­er­able paces.

“Un­like some or­gan­i­sa­tions we don’t have a prob­lem with things be­ing non­stan­dard, we wel­come them with open arms – as dif­fer­ent as pos­si­ble,” said the club’s web­site.

“If you want to see beyond the con­fines of ‘nor­mal’ the BHPC is the place to be.”
