Polish stunt cyclist, Krystian Herba, climbed 3139 steps of Taipei 101 on Sunday to set the world record for climbing stairs with a bicycle, Focus Taiwan reported. He set the record in 2 hours and 12 minutes.

Herba jumped the stairs up to the 52nd floor before taking the elevator back to the first floor and then jumping back up to the 91st floor observation deck (he remained on the bike while in the elevator).

In 2013, Herba set the world record by climbing 2754 stairs at the Shanghai World Financial Center. He broke that record in Melbourne last year before attempting Taipei 101.

Visitors to Taipei 101 are requested to leave their bikes outside.
