This is for everyone who thinks riding a bike feels like flying. The folks in this 1962 video definitely thought so, and took it one step further right into literal-ville with this first ever (according to the website) human-powered flying machine. Does it actually fly? You’ll have to see for yourself…

Also, the guy in the cockpit/saddle looks like he could use a wool base layer, or at least a scarf. Hope he runs hot!
