Watch This Swiss Man Ride a Rocket-Powered Bike Over 200 MPH
He looks as crazy as he clearly is.
Some achievements defy contextualization – there’s nothing to do but look on in awe or horror. That’s precisely how we recommend experiencing this video of Swiss bike racer François Gissy piloting a rocket–powered bicycle at 207 mph.
The man wears little beyond a helmet and a very tame looking Nomex suit and the bike, besides the medium-sized rocket attached to its rear, looks like a lightly stretched Schwinn. It’s awesome and unnerving to see a thin-framed bike zoom past at jetliner speeds.. We recommend you watch a few times, and consider how truly and profoundly boring your life really is.
