Video: Madcap genius Colin Furze builds tall bike for social distancing

Everyone's favourite YouTube inventor turns his hand to keeping distance during pandemic...

You can trust our favourite YouTube inventor, Colin Furze to think outside the box, even in these times of social distancing.

While we at, and some rather more clever people at universities in Belgium and the Netherlands have been grappling with how much space you should give between yourself and the rider in front, the madcap genius has found another solution - by going upwards.

We love it.

You can find other bike-related shenanigans from Furze that we have featured on, including his hover bike and that time he fired 1,000 rockets from a bicycle, here.
