BLACK BIKES DOES THE BEVERLEY HEROIC!
The Back Alley Peddlers/Black Bikes crew took to the gravel country back tracks of the Beverley-York locale for a Heroic 50 miles.
The Black Bikes Doom Racer took out the peoples choice and a Heroic Bike award.
Built up two days before the race from a solid Malvern Star Path Frame and new old stock shifters and brakes, she held up well to the gruelling, rutted and loose gravel tracks.
Congratulations to all involved.
Special mention to Owen Watchla and Max Brinkworth for taking out Heroic awards along with The Boss.
The Rover Road Race of 1897 was the brainchild of Percy Armstrong, noted rider and entrepreneurial owner of the Rover Cycling Agency. The gruelling event of 116 miles over rough turn of the century roads proved popular and was later re-named The Beverley to Perth Race - or simply the “Beverley”.
