Scottish cyclist Graeme Obree is getting ready to make an attempt on the World Human Powered Speed Challenge in September.
Nicknamed the Flying Scotsman, Obree will challenge the current record of 133.2kmh in a vehicle he made himself in his kitchen – called the Beastie.
He said the Beastie, which ws made from fiberglass and kelvar, was designed to maximise air flow.
He pedals it in a lying-down position close to the ground, looking through a cockpit-like windshield.
