About this project

                         My dream is to become a Rocket Bicycle Pilot 

Creating a Rocket Bicycle is a bit of a challenge.  However, it is doable and I intend to make it fun for us all.  The rocket system to be used on the Rocket Bicycle will be simple in style, but effective. It will propell the bicycle in a forward manner, while pulling the streamers and attached cans that have been personalized with the names of honored project participants.  My apparel will be fire proof for safety and in keeping with our patriotic theme.  The Rocket Bicycle will also carry our patriotic theme along with the streamers and personalized cans.  I am excited to be able to bring my dream of a Rocket Bicycle to fruition so that I may become a Rocket Bicycle Pilot.  I look forward to not only this project, but to many future projects with our Kickstarter family.  Thanks in advance for your participation, it is much appreciated.

Risks and challenges

Many equations were conquered in order to overcome the obstacles of this Rocket Bicycle project:
Lateral torque, thrust vectoring, trajectory and the adverse effects of gravity had to be considered. (Even though the sling shot effect may not help me.) Studying, and understanding how many newtons it will take to push an unequal mass of flesh and metal, in order to achieve a membership in the elite class of Rocket Bicycle Pilots. I have spent endless hours researching the intricacies of the Rocket Bicycle in order to make an informed effort at creating the Rocket Bicycle to be used in this project. There are fewer Rocket Bicycle Pilots than there are hikers that have tried to climb Mt. Everest, and possibly with the same velocity. I intend to be a Rocket Bicycle Pilot!
