They’re off at the human powered vehicle races
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.”
