Rocket powered bike hits 333 kph

"On November 7th of 2014, on the famous Circuit Paul Ricard located at Le Castellet in South of France, François Gissy has reached an incredible speed of 333 km/h on the rocket-propelled bicycle designed by his friend Arnold Neracher."

This looks like a hydrogen peroxide engine, a good choice for such a task as it is relatively safe and still powerful enough to get the job done. There is really no limit to how fast a rocket powered bike could go, supersonic runs are probably possible.

A significantly faster rocket bike at Bonneville can be seen here:
