World Record Tall Bike

Terry Goertzen, pastor of Jubilee Mennonite Church in Winnipeg, rode the world’s tallest bicycle for 300 metres to earn a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Although he confessed to pre-ride jitters and had fallen when practicing the day before, the official ride on his 5.5 metre bike went smoothly. He well surpassed the 100-metre distance requirement for the record. The bike is constructed like a ladder and powered by an 11-metre bicycle chain.

The origins of the feat were innocent enough. Terry’s wife SuAnn had given him a welding set for Christmas and soon he was building bikes, including a multi-layered one. On a whim, he checked the world’s record for tallest bicycle. When he realized he was already close to the 4.3 metre record, he decided to beat it.
