This month, Friday the 13th was a lucky day for U of T Engineering’s Human Powered Vehicle Design Team (HPVDT), as they broke the world record for tandem biking at the World Human Powered Speed Challenge (WHPSC).

Learn how EngSci alumni helped the team shatter their previous record with a top speed of 120.2 km/hr.
