World's longest bicycle is 117 feet in length

How long can a bicycle possibly be ? Image Credit: CC BY-SA 2.0 ginnerobot / Flickr
Cyclists in the Netherlands have constructed a bicycle so long that it spans more than half a city block.
The outrageous contraption, which is even longer than the world's longest limo and requires two people to operate it, has been formally recognized as the single longest bicycle on Earth.

Stretching 117 feet long, the bike is extra wide at the back to help keep it upright and is built out of a super-strong aluminum truss that is normally used to hold up stage lighting.

While it is possible to ride it providing one person sits at the front to steer and another sits at the back to pedal, attempting to turn tight corners with it is easier said than done.

That's one way of not getting your bike stolen. You will always know your bike when you see it.
