This page chronicles the construction of a streamlined bicycle or “streamliner” in an attempt to participate in the World Human Powered Speed Challenge (WHPSC) near Battle Mountain, Nevada.
Human powered vehicles or HPV’s first entered my stream of consciousness when I was about eleven or twelve years old. I was watching the television, and saw a report on a HPV that was capable of 60 miles per hour. I vividly remember seeing the rider through clear plastic canopy pedaling a gigantic chainring. I naively thought there was no limit to what you could do if you had a big enough chainring.
