Plymouth University launches an ambitious attempt to break two world land speed records when cyclists from around the world will gather on State Route 305 outside of Battle Mountain, Nevada during the week of 12-19 September 2016.
The University's handcycle has been designed and built by Mechanical Engineering students, led by Adam Kyte, Lecturer in Mechanical and Marine Engineering Design.
The University has teamed up with Sarah Piercy, Women's Wheelchair London Marathon winner (2000) and Chris Jones, a former Army Air Corps trooper and Help4Heroes ambassador.
Find out more about the Handcycle Challenge 2016 via the Project Nevada link above.
This event is aimed specifically at Plymouth U3A members who will find out more from Adam and his team about Project Nevada and their world record attempt.
