Guinness World Records has new footage of 16-year-old Harry Denton from New Zealand breaking the record for the Longest bicycle manual at Nelson Airport last year.
The teenager travelled on his back wheel for a staggering 338.9 m (1,111.87 ft), without using the bike’s pedals.
Following the Guinness World Records rules, Harry’s feet did not touch the ground at any point during the wheelie.
The guidelines for this title also state that the course must be measured and marked out by someone suitably qualified, such as a professional surveyor. This person has to confirm that the average gradient over the entire course is no greater than 1:1000. If the gradient is steeper than this, the record attempt must be made “uphill”.
In his application for the title, the teen said: “One of my life goals is to break a world record. Whenever I get on my bike I spend most of the time on the back wheel “.
