Ratracer. The search for eternal youth Mike Burrows

Legendary bicycle design Mike Burrows returns to the Engineering Club to recount, amongst other things, his love affair with the recumbent bicycle.

 

Since he was part of the aerodynamic bicycle revolution with the development of the Lotus bike for the Barcelona Olympics, Mike Burrows has been at the forefront of developments in bicycle engineering from the compact frame to revolutionary mountain bike suspension systems. However in his continued quest for competitive speed it is through the "ratracer" recumbent that he strives to deliver the most efficient performance and engineering perfection.

 

Those familiar with Mike's brilliant talks will know that he will cover many other aspects of bicycle design.
