Are you sick of taking the old, slow school bus every morning? How about using a rocket powered bike?
Swiss cyclist Francois Gissy used a home-made rocket-propelled bicycle to reach 333 kilometres per hour on a racetrack.
It took him just 4.8 seconds to reach the record speed.
Francois believes he can achieve 400 kilometres per hour on his next run around the racetrack.
“It’s extremely intense,” he said after his record breaking ride.
“At the moment of riding it’s very scary – there’s no pleasure like you would get from a motorcycle.”
“But when you stop, you think – yes, that was amazing.”
It is hard to imagine travelling at that speed, but it would be terrifying. I would not like to take his place!
