WICHITA, Kan. -- In an attempt to break a world records, hundreds of bicyclists came to ride at an event at Wichita River Festival.

The record was how many bicycles could make a continuous line, moving all at once. The current record was set at 1,148 bicycles.

The event was planned by Christina Calhoun, it took her over a month to get everything organized.

"It is slightly terrifying because you can see how big it is about to be," she said, "we've lapped the entire block and there are still people waiting to leave the starting gate, that is just a huge group, it was so exciting."

The group wanted 1,200 people with bicycles to attend. The official number will not be released for a few days, but one spectator said it was rumored that 1,800 people were in attendance.
