7 Mile Horizon.

Something I missed…that I thought was pretty damn rad!

You could call this a story of opposites.  A story where the chapter headings would be something like Land vs Sea, Tide vs Time, Coast vs Carbon.  The premise was simple, to ride a track bike to the birthplace of British speed, Pendine Sands. A seven mile beach located in a corner of South West Wales, Great Britain.   It was here in the twenties where Sir Malcolm Campbell and his aero-engined Sunbeam Bluebird set the world land speed record and started a legend.  With our Bluebird, powered by egg bacon sausage and geared at 51/15, Campbell’s 1924 speed of 146.16mph was safe, Sand vs Gears.

The team was Welsh artist Death Spray Custom, English photographer Joe McGorty and UK cycle collective The 5th Floor.
