Because getting around shouldn’t cost the Earth…

Felix Guirola

There are tall bikes and then there are TALL bikes. The bike of Felix Guirola  is 13 feet (4 metres) tall!

Felix and his bike have become quite the regular celebrities in the Cuban capital Havana where Felix goes on a daily ride on the streets. To get on the bike, other people need to hold up the bike while he scrambles up to the top.

If he has to stop riding, he has to lower himself down while the bike’s still in motion and grab the frame before it topples when he gets to the ground.

Felix has a bit of history of building tall bikes and plans to build a bike that will challenge the current world’s tallest rideable bicycle – a 5.55-metre tall bike made and ridden by Canadian Terry Goertzen.

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
