Jack Butler’s solar recumbent bike (2024)


This article is very different from the others: it contains little text, at least for the moment. On the other hand, in the following video, Jack gives you a detailed description of the bike he designed and used for the Sun Trip to Sahara. It was this bike that allowed him to be the fastest over the 7,000 km of the course and to arrive in 1st position in Chambéry in 23 days.
