"As I was taping my feet to the bike some old guy on a bike came over and said he didn't think it was a good idea," Cameron Jeffers told Cycling Weekly.

This did not deter him though, from setting out on his quest to break the Hour Record but with a twist - on a Boris Bike, something he described in his YouTube account as one of the "hardest things I've ever done".
