HPV racing photos
- Hi Dennis Grelk, et al,
I took lots of pictures at the Human Powered Vehicle races this weekend at
Hawkeye Downs in Cedar Rapids that Dennis Grelk organized, race in and won
Mostly I used Aaron Stiles' camera but I used my own memory chip for
some. Forward this to your hpv lists.
look for the HPV race folder.
As always, I'll send the full size originals to anyone that asks. Include
the file name.
The top speed I observed during the streamliner 25 mile race (50 laps) was
about 45 seconds per lap! That works out to just over 40 mph, maybe more
since they weren't taking the shorter inside line all the way around. A
bit faster than what regular bikes do at about 1 minute for the faster riders.
I also uploaded 3 brief video clips at youtube.com
zooom, they are so quiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiet. Except for the passing TRAIN!
