Cyclist Sets World Record for Highest Speed

Briton Neil Campbell set a Guinness men's world cycling speed record.

A cyclist set a world record when he biked more than 174 mph over the weekend. 

Briton Neil Campbell set the new Guinness men's world cycling speed record on Saturday in England.

Using a $18,000 bike with a parachute attached, he beat the previous record of 167 mph that was set in 1995. He was pulled to the speed by a Porsche Cayenne.

The record-setter said he hopes next year he can hit 200 mph.

“We want to, in fact we think we can do 220-plus. So hence the hashtag 220 in 2020,” Campbell said, per Reuters.
