So Butler's 509.3 claim in 2001 was incorrect by 3.5 miles? :shock: :? 509.3.JPG Hi - not sure about that, I've not seen that before. I had a flick through a couple of John Taylor's RRA books and see no reference to Gethin claiming that distance. I do know that 509.3 is Gethin's 24 hour PB (under R...

Re: Penny Farthing record

Unless it's a ringer, which I doubt, 24hourmaths is the current holder of the record. I am standing to attention as I type this. Welcome indeed. ======= PS Is it significant that there's no more room on that shield? Thanks :) The 24 hour shield is already full and now has a rather unsightly larger ...
