This is the bicycle that won the Chapter Challenge at the I.W.G. Chapter Challenge, 2015. It was made by the South-East Chapter. It is ALL wood, including the chain (about 600 pieces alone), the tyres (the pattern was hand carved) and the wheel spokes (they were all made by hand). The brakes actually work and if the pedals are turned the chain drives the rear wheel, which actually freewheels. It is an incredible piece of work, as were all eight entries for the competition. Hearty congratulations to all the South-East team.
Cork Chapter did not have an entry but hopefully we will remedy that next year and in future years.
