Rocket Bicycle World Record ǀ 333 km/h (207 mph) ǀ Rider: François Gissy

A slight wobble or twitch on the handlebars and it's over.


On November 7th of 2014, on the Circuit Paul Ricard located at Le Castellet in South of France, I have reached a speed of 333 km/h on a rocket-propelled bicycle, after only 4.8 seconds of acceleration. A velocity of more than 300 km/h on a skinny and completely stripped bicycle

The force coming out of the hubs is so great that any little twitch will likely be minimal. A wobble however, very very bad. There are so many other elements to test, like the wheels not exploding from the centrifugal force.
