Setting themselves a challenge to get into the Guinness World Records annual, members of Dutch cycling organisation the Mijl Van Mares Werkploeg built the Longest bicycle in the world, measuring an astonishing 35.79 m (117 ft 5 in) long.
Â With several aluminium trusses used to link both ends (the kind used for lighting rigs at concerts) to ensure the lengthy frame doesnâ€™t sag, the bicycle has to be operated by two people: one steers at the front while another pedals from the back.
However, in all other ways it is a true bicycle that actually works, with only two wheels and no stabilisers.
The groupâ€™s leader, Frank Pelt told GWR that the bike is quite easy to ride, â€śjust donâ€™t turn any corners!â€ť
Â The Mijl Van Mares Werkploeg successfully achieved their challenge and secured a place in Guinness World Records 2016, but their record was stretched when Santos and University of South Australia (both Australia) created a 41.42 m (135 ft 10.7 in) long bicycle, as measured and ridden in Adelaide, Australia, earlier this year.
