World’s longest tandem

1069.bThe world’s longest tandem was built in 2010 by a group of Dutch engineering students from Delft Technical University, headed by Teije Meier and Jan Bart Brink, beating the previous record set by an 85-foot bike in Italy in 1998.  The Dutch bike had to be lifted by crane into the start position, then the two cyclists – one either end – pedalled the machine unaided over 100 metres.  Built out of steel tubing, the bike measures 92-feet (28.1 m) and weighs a hefty 881-pounds.

 

The world’s longest solo-rider bike was built by an Indonesian village from piping and measures 44 feet.
