“No bolts, no screws, just wood and glue!” With the immortal words, “If you build, I’ll ride it,” two friends embark on an 12-month journey to set the first official world land-speed record for a 100% wooden bicycle. We follow the trials and tribulations of the duo, from design and testing, to being the centre of a global media storm, to the attempt itself, through to the installation of their unique creation at the V&A museum in London. SplinterBike is an often-hilarious tale of British eccentricity, engineering and sporting endeavour at its best.
