IHPVA'S WORLD HUMAN POWERED SPEED CHALLENGE
Held in Battle Mountain, NV, home of one of the straightest, flattest and smoothest roads in the world
Mid September, 2022
During the second week of September, cyclists from around the world will gather on State Route 305 outside of Battle Mountain, Nevada in a quest to break the human-powered land speed record. The record currently stands at 86.65 mph (139.21 kmph).

ASME'S HPVC WEST
(American Society of Mechanical Engineer's Human Powered Vehicle Competition West)
Design is always critical when building a bike for speed. This year, we will be looking to revamp an old bike or create an entirely new one with an integrated frame and fairing and get 60+ mph.
About the Competition
The competition is to get as fast as you can over the course of a week on the flattest road out there. This race tests the speed and aerodynamics of the bike as you move into the higher speed range.
March 25-26, 2018
ASME's international Human Powered Vehicle Challenge (HPVC) provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate the application of sound engineering design principles in the development of sustainable and practical transportation alternatives.In the HPVC, students work in teams to design and build efficient, highly engineered vehicles for everyday use—from commuting to work, to carrying goods to market.
The first segment of the competition regards everything the team has been doing for the school year and condensing it into a 30 page design report detailing each component of the bike. This is usually turned in a month before the competition.
This second segment also regards what the team does before the competition, but in terms of a innovative technology, manufacturing method or bike design. An innovation report is written up with a heavy priority on testing and application.
