Hell On Wheelz
When the pillion and I were on our little junket in The Northern Rivers of NSW* a few weeks ago, we stumbled across what can only be described as some of the best road racing we’ve seen in a long time.
The population of Bangalow had swollen from a mere 2,000 to over 10,000 to watch 250 competitors take part in this 20th anniversary event. Even the main street was closed off to through traffic.
Everyone; race fans, onlookers, TV news, newspaper reporters and photographers, all of them had come from all over The Northern Rivers District to watch these racers strap themselves into what can only be described as engineering marvels.
Machines from the sleek and slipstream, to the down right dangerous, this was a day we won’t forget in a very long while.
What a sight!
Yep, we had stumbled across The Bangalow Billycart Derby. I’ll let the pictures tell the story from here.
