Hackney is to attempt the world’s biggest ‘Bike Bus’ next month, with 900 cyclists signed up to take over the streets and make a new world record.
The annual Bike Around The Borough event for adults and children alike will follow a route around the area, picking up new participants as they go. A secret finish location will reveal the total number of participants and hopefully made a new record.
The highest number of people taking part in a bike bus was 880 in Australia last year.
Last year's "bike around the borough" broke a record of its own, when more than 500 children cycled in single-file around Hackney.
A bike bus must have riders four abreast on the road, and passengers can only join at designated ‘bus stops’ along the route.
Participants must also wear special record attempt clothing.
