23 year-old Zhang Jincheng (张金成) broke a world record upon hopping up all 88 floors of the Jin Mao Tower on a bike. Zhang hopped sideways up all 1,980 steps in 1 hour 41 minutes, breaking the record set when someone (we couldn’t find the name) went up the Eiffel Tower in the same way. Each step is about 20 centimeters high, 40 deep, and 1.4 long, which made it hard for a guy on a 1.5 meter long bike to hop up each one, but hop he did. Zhang said that the first time he saw the Jinmao Tower, five years ago, he swore that he’d climb it, and on the last day of 2006, that’s exactly what he did.
