No bolts or screws, just wood and glues! ...                                                                                           a 100% Wooden Bicycle Land Speed Record... attempt!

Inside the Eco-Shed in deepest, flattest Norfolk, a dream is about to be realised... Is it possible to build a 100% wooden bike and set a world land speed record?
James Tully and I think it is - but most importantly for me at least, he is prepared to ride The Splinter at the Lotus test track to prove it!

From 16 September 2010 we will be designing and building this beast and our exciting project is being captured on film by our friends over at Top Box Media who are recording the adventure.

So please chuck a quid or two in the pot and help us raise funds to help others in crisis  (and to get James some plasters)...

Thanks for looking!  Michael Thompson.
