Bicycle World Record 207 mph 333 km/h
www.youtube.com1DAA50E1-0355-420D-A1AD-2C244287F3DCCreated with sketchtool.
I can't really explain this, so I will let the video creator to do so: "On November 7th of 2014, on the famous Circuit Paul Ricard located at Le Castellet in South of France, François Gissy has reached an incredible speed of 333 km/h on the rocket-propelled bicycle designed by his friend Arnold Neracher. More than 300 km/h on a skinny and completely stripped bicycle." There are so many things this video left me wanting to know, but the main thing I wanted to know: how in the world could he stay on that thing??

it has an engine...the moment they put an engine on a "bicycle" it becomes a motorcycle...
@Spudsy2061 en·gine ˈenjən/ noun noun: engine; plural noun: engines 1. a machine with moving parts that converts power into motion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocket_engine
@apoe It's not internet or external combustion therefore it is not a car. By this definition the simple gears on the bike, rocket or not, would make the bike a motorcycle. You would not say a reaction engine makes a car necessarily because if it did, then objects like the Voyager would be a car. It's not about simple definition, it's about perspective.
@Spudsy2061 Gonna have to agree with you on this one!!! Either way, how does that guy balance?! That's what impresses me most.
