LE CASTELLET, France (NBC/RTV/KXAN) — A daredevil Frenchman reached speeds up to 207 mph on his rocket-propelled bicycle. Francois Gissy, 32, says he has broken a record. The bike actually has pedals that Gissy uses to ride onto the track. Then, he ignites a small rocket that uses hydrogen peroxide as fuel. It took him only 4.8 seconds to reach his record speed.
