This is a bicycle. The fastest bicycle on earth.
I’m sure you are tempted to ask how is this a bicycle?, where will the cyclist sit? yada yada yada. Errr… I’ll try to tell you what I found out.
The inventors are a group of students from Liverpool University. According to them, the actual bicycle is encased in an aerodynamic outer shell. The shape of the windscreen-less carbon fibre casing is said to be40 times more aerodynamic than a Bugatti Veyron supercar.
Going at a crazy rate of 90mph, the cyclist will use a camera and computer monitor to see their way as they zoom to smash the 83.1mph record set by a Dutch team in 2012.
Thankfully this bicycle, dubbed the ARION1, is painted white and blue. Imagine… if it had been painted an earthy reddish brown colour, it would look lik a giant mutant (and quite alien) earthworm zooming past you on a highway!
