Move over, traffic. Clear the streets. The world's longest bicycle, according to the Guinness World Record, has arrived...in the Netherlands.
At 117 feet long, the bike stretches half a city block and spans farther than the word's longest limo, which is currently 100 feet long.

Dutch cycling group Mijl Van Mares Werkploeg, on a mission to build the world's longest bike, used a whole lot of aluminum (a truss designed to support concert lighting) that's sturdy enough to keep the long trunk of the bike from sagging.
The lengthy contraption meets Guinness World Record's two requirements: the bike has only two wheels and is operable. Because it's so long, the bike requires two operators –one in front for steering and another in back for pedaling.
The wheel in back is extra wide to help keep the bike upright, and there are no stabilizers or training wheels involved.
