Rocket Powered Bicycle Goes 207mph

Ho-Lee Shit. Last week a crazy man by the name of Francois Gissy strapped some rockets to the back of a bicycle and went for a joyride around the local neighborhood. The bike was so fast it he was 207mph before he knew it – which was about 4.8 seconds. That’s a world record apparently. Imagine how fast his little legs were churning. 

Not only did it set a world record, it also smoked a Ferrari F430 in a drag race. That’s right, a 20 pound bicycle with a rocket producing 560hp beat a 3,000 pound car with 490hp in a straight line race. Unbelievable! Ferrari better get working on a Batmobile with afterburners.

Anyway, here’s the video of Francois Gissy on his crotch-rocket… literally.
