Welcome to Gravity Engine
Here at Gravity Engine we like to have a laugh with anything
that is gravity-powered.
It might be snowboarding down a mountain
in the Alps, building and racing a Soapbox Racer and for this year
we got on our bikes and cycled from the Irish sea to the North
For 2005, Joel had this plan - how about
we bike from the West Coast to the East Coast for a bit of a laugh.
We didn't need much persuading and so the C2C Biking Trip 2005 was
born. The magnificent 7 gathered on sunny June day, 5 bikers : Joel,
Andy, Toni, James & Dan. 2 support crew : Wez & Sarah and set of
on the 146 mile trek from Whitehaven to Newcastle.
It wasn't easy biking through the Lake District and over the Pennines
in all weathers, from blazing sunshine to thick fog and torrential
rain but we prevailed.

James had this idea, lets build a kart and race it in the Red Bull
Soapbox Challenge.Not needing much persuading, we quickly assembled
a team and built a giant Grimsby Fish - Halibut Lector and raced
in the Red Bull Soapbox Race 2004.
It took ages to build and test
and ended up with a broken shoulder but we all had a great time
and we got to meet Murray Walker...

The Gravityengine website concept was thought up on a ski lift half
way up a mountain in the French Alps.
Orginally, this website served
as a snowboarding gallery and although it has grown to be a lot
more besides, here are all the cool photos that started this whole
Now with photos from Les Arcs, Courcheval, Morzine and the dry slope
in Halifax. View
