Clear the streets! Dutch cycling group Mijl Van Mares Werkploeg just broke the 2016 world record for longest bicycle.
At a whopping 117 feet long, the bike stretches half a city block and spans farther than the word’s longest limo, at 100 feet long.

The group used sturdy aluminum (designed to support concert lighting) to keep the long trunk of the bike from sagging in the middle. Per Guinness World Record’s requirements, it has just two wheels and is actually operable. Because it’s so long, the bike requires two operators – one in front for steering, another in back for pedaling – but there are no stabilizers or training wheels involved.
