Could you pedal this bike to 90mph? The University of Liverpool thinks you can.

The record for the world’s fastest bike is 83.1mph, but a group of engineers called the ‘Velocipede Team’ at the University of Liverpool’s Institution of Mechanical Engineering is trying to change that. The team has designed a sleek and cool looking bike called ARION1 that they believe will be able to go 90 miles an hour when powered by a single human.

The ARION1 looks more like a space capsule than a bike. Its shell is aerodynamic but inside is your regular functional bike – on steroids. The rider monitors the outside environment using a camera, a computer and pedals in a recumbent lounging posture.
