The hare and the tortoise – hare wins, longtails perish

What carbon footprint? I love the Isle of Man. This week, two teams from Bike Magazine set out to see if they could complete a 24-hour endurance test (a bit like Le Mans except on real roads with roadkill). Apparently the teams covered over 2,000 miles, used $1000-worth of petrol and completed 58 laps. See the story here iomonline or read the whole thing in Bike Magazine on October 29th.
