See 173 Sets of Twins on Tandem Bikes Try to Set a World Record

Jul 15, 2015

Early Wednesday morning, 173 sets of twins rode tandem bicycles in New York City's Central Park to try and set a world record for the most twins riding tandem bicycles at once.

Some participants came from as far as North Dakota, Idaho, California, and Toronto, Canada. There were pregnant twins, twins dressed like clowns, twins with slinkies attached to their helmets, and even a set of triplets who called themselves a "pair with a spare" (in case one fell off the bike), according to Debra Ganz, an event organizer.

However, she says an official for Guinness World Records could not verify the record because the participants were staggered and were not riding their bikes consecutively or in parade fashion. But because there only needed to be 150 bikers to set one, she maintains the event was "the biggest tandem bike ride that has ever been done."

The stunt also happened to be a promotion for the upcoming VH1 show Twinning, which premieres July 22.

When asked if she would attempt the record again, Ganz said, "Of course. We're twins. We have to do this twice."
