Video: Man solves Rubik's Cube one-handed in 40 seconds - while riding Boris Bike

Simone Santarsiero cracked 3D puzzle while cycling in Hyde Park

Here’s something we haven’t seen before – someone solving a Rubik’s Cube one-handed in less than 40 seconds, while steering a Boris Bike with the other.

The video was shot in Hyde Park on a recent trip to London by Simone Santarsiero, whose YouTube channel reveals him to be a big fan of the 3D puzzle invented in 1974 by Ernő Rubik.

There’s nothing in The Royal Parks’ Pathway Code of Conduct: Considerate Cycling that specifically addresses the issue of solving a Rubik’s Cube while riding, but we’re sure there will be soon.

Simon joined as news editor in 2009 and is now the site’s community editor, acting as a link between the team producing the content and our readers. A law and languages graduate, published translator and former retail analyst, he has reported on issues as diverse as cycling-related court cases, anti-doping investigations, the latest developments in the bike industry and the sport’s biggest races. Now back in London full-time after 15 years living in Oxford and Cambridge, he loves cycling along the Thames but misses having his former riding buddy, Elodie the miniature schnauzer, in the basket in front of him.
