BumpInTheNight: How could he possibly slow down in time for a red light though?


If he goes fast enough the red light shifts to violet.

Mork: "I got a ticket for doing the speed of light in a speed of sound zone.  I would have pulled over earlier, but I couldn't see the lights or hear the siren."

Then a clown squirts you with seltzer water and honks his bicycle horn. FIN.

Proof positive cyclists have something lodged in their ass.

That's a trick question, because bicyclists never stop for a red light.

Walter Paisley: On first glance I read "hydrogen-peroxide" in the headline as nitrous oxide. It's still fitting as it would work for both giving the rocket bike a boost and for making the broken bones and hellish road rash less painful until the medics get to him. Just imagine this scenario being portrayed in a 50's ephemeral film where the incredibly optimistic narrator ponders "Nitrous oxide: just what can't this miracle compound accomplish?" (air pollution conspicuously absent).


Well a near 100% H2O2 solution is some nasty shiat. It will cause some "someone just opened the Arc of the Covenent in here" face melting larity if it gets on human flesh.

symptomoftheuniverse: that was my nickname in highschool: A rocket?  I don't think that counts as a bicycle speed record.

/extreme euros can be weird

This. What about riding a bike off a very tall cliff and timing the fall? Would that count as a speed record?


No, you'd have a hard time trying to exceed your terminal velocity (some where around 120 mph). Maybe if you rode a rocket powered bike off of a cliff that might work.

How is this a bicycle? I think he should have to pedal the whole time using fixed gears. That would give the legs a workout.
