Rocket Powered Bicycle hits 285kmh

Ever been out riding and wished you had a rocket on your bike? Francois Gissy has got a rocket on his bike, one that has just taken him up to 285km/h and has enabled him to set a new land speed world record by reaching 263 km/h (163 mph) on a 790m track. True enough he didn’t peddle it (although it has peddles) but he did sit astride a tank of concentrated liquid hydrogen peroxide and a rocket. See it in action below:
