Experiments in Speed

"Inspired by those great men of the salt flats, those men that in the 60s pushed the Land Speed Record from the 300s up towards the 600mph mark in jet-propelled cars built in their sheds", Tom Donhou (frame builder) developed an impressive bicycle "in the spirit of those pioneers of speed". Taking his bicycle, equiped with a chain ring with 104 tooth, to an airstrip in Norfolk, United Kingdom, Donhou gave everything he had and tried to go as fast as he could. The film shows this story of courage, persistence, that defies the possible. Simply inspiring! donhou-experimental3donhou-experimental2donhou-experimental4
