AeroVelo is the Fastest Human-Powered Bike in the World
Well, we know that machines are capable of reaching high speeds but only when they are powered by different types of fuel. Machines powered by humans, e.g. bicycles etc, aren’t as fast, can’t be as fast.
However, a new man-made bike is not only human-powered, but it can reach considerable amount of speed. While regular bikes normally reach 20 to 30 Mps, The AeroVelo has reached 85.71 Mph.
The bullet/rocket shaped bike now holds the record for the fastest human-powered bike in the world, which is a remarkable achievement for its designer and rider.
It took AeroVela 8KM to build up this speed in Battle Mountain, Nevada. At this location, AeroVelo broke the previous record of 83.13 miles per hour, something that isn’t possible on a regular bike.
AeroVelo speedbike is fully enclosed and rider has to lean back completely horizontally while riding. The bike is able to reach over 80 Mph due to weight, aerodynamics, and sheer physical endurance. If I say it looks like a human hamster wheel, it wouldn’t be wrong.
The event in Nevada isn’t yet over, so we may see the record broken once again.
