Your daily commute may be a bit shorter on this ride--possibly only a few bike lengths.
Mijil Van Mares Werkploeg, a cycling organization in the Netherlands, built this custom bicycle in order to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for the world's longest bicycle. As it's 117 feet and 5 inches long, it succeeded! The bike is made of the same sort of aluminum trusses used in concert lighting rigs. One person steers from the front and another pedals from the rear. There are no stabilizers, so it's a real bike!
Is it hard to ride? Team leader Frank Pelt says that it's no problem. You can ride it as long as you like, so as long as you don't need to turn a corner.
