“Build the World’s Fastest Bike.” That’s the goal of AeroVelo, a Toronto organization seeking funding to manufacture a crazy-aero pod powered only by a human pedaling inside.

See the Kickstarter here. The AeroVelo bike will reach “highway speeds” on flat ground with a goal to break the world record of 83mph.

The design is so aerodynamic that the inventors tout, “If your car looked like this, you could drive across Canada on a quarter tank of gas!”

The bike above is called the Bluenose. It’s photographed on a track in Nevada going 78MPH. See the AeroVelo page to help these human-powered speed demons reach their goal. —Stephen Regenold
