Today began with a great email from my new friend Richard Thoday, who has asked us if we would like to put the Splinter Bike on show at a bicycle event he is organising this September... Let's hope we have the land speed record is in the bag by then!

He is one of our biggest Splinter Bike fans and competed in the The Knutsford Great Race, which is a totally unique event held once every ten years (next race 2020), featuring Original Dandy Horse Machines, Bone-Shakers and Penny Farthing Cycles dating from the middle of the 19th Century.  You will not see anything like this anywhere else, with riders from all over the world entering including the likes of World circumnavigator Joff Somerfield.
Take a look at this event via the wonder of YouTube, sit back and enjoy...
