It's definitely one way to whizz through rush-hour traffic and avoid the cycling dangers of trucks, white vans and the rest.
François Gissy stuck a rocket onto his bike last week and reached the speed of 333km/h (207mph) on the Circuit Paul Ricard at Le Castellet in the south of France.
His rocket-propelled bike was designed by a friend, Arnold Neracher, and Gissy told Gizmag that he now wants to go on to reach 400km/h (249mph) in less than two seconds.
He explained that the bike has a cluster of three small rocket thrusters that are fuelled by highly concentrated hydrogen peroxide.
The bike easily beat a Ferrari F430 out of the starting blocks on the track.
Describing what it's like to travel at over 200mph on a basic bike, Gissy said, "You better understand why the wind can do so much damage during powerful storms. I'm lucky my head is still bolted on the body!"Reuse content
