Flying bicycle debuted in Czech Republic

Decrease Increase Text size

A trio of companies in the Czech Republic have teamed up to create a bicycle so modern, its tires barely wear out.

That's because the bicycle can fly.

The three companies debuted their flying bicycle Wednesday at a convention hall in Prague, sending their creation into flight for 5 minutes.

A person wasn't in the saddle for this demo run; rather, a dummy took the ride on the remote-controlled bicycle. According to National Post, the bike weighs 95 kilograms and is powered by six propellers.
