Turn handle to left to go right; Ride this Brain Cycle to get Rs 500 as reward
Thiruvananthapuram: If anyone dares to ride a bicycle of the cycle club of College of Engineering Trivandrum (CET) in Thiruvananthapuram, they will get Rs 500 as reward. When people try it as a silly task, they will realise riding this cycle requires not only your foot but brains too.
When the Brain Cycle’s handle is turned to left, it moves right and vice versa. More than 2000 persons took this challenge and tried to ride the Brain Cycle, nobody was able to go more than 5 metres.
Cycle’s owner Muhammed Mussadiq is a student of CET. He rode the Brain Cycle from Kozhikode to Thiruvananthapuram covering 504 km without causing any accident. This performance has been considered for a Guinness Book Record.
Hailing from Vengara in Malappuram, Mussadiq is a member of the cycle club of CET which was formed to encourage cycle journey. He is a student of 4th year Mechanical Engineering.
Mussadiq introduced the cycle in a tech fest organised at the college in March last year. The bicycle was purchased for Rs 7000 and was modified it spending Rs 1500 at the mechanical workshop in the college. Also he named it ‘Brain Cycle’.
Mussadiq made the Brain Cycle for fun but when nobody dared to take up the challenge, he rode it himself. Though he fell many times, later it became a thrill. The CET cycle club members challenged the students of ten other colleges to ride the Brain Cycle in the past one year, but nobody could win.
