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.
