That's an incredible feat! The AeroVelo team is a small team of University of Toronto alumni, students and volunteers.
Todd Reichert is one of the engineers and the guy in the pilot's seat stated:
"As you spin your legs, you're spinning the rotors. It's very much an exercise in mental and physical control, at the same time as an all-out physical effort."
Go team Canada!
Actually hovering at three metres off the ground is an "incredible feeling," he says.
"It's like you're biking along the street and someone came and just picked up your bike, and now you're floating. At the same time you don't really have the time to appreciate that, because of everything that's going on. Upon landing is when it all sinks in."
