MINI BELIEVE IT OR NOT –
The Cyclomer launched in Paris in 1932 was the world’s first amphibious bicycle.
- The cyclomer had hollow wheels and floats
- The bike didn’t work out because it didn’t get traction on land or in the water
- Other amphibious bikes have since come up to take its place
“BIONs” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
