FILE - In this May 18, 2012 file photo, Felix Guirola waves to people as he takes his self-made 3.45 meters (11 feet) tall bicycle for a spin through downtown Havana, Cuba. Guirola has been riding tall since 1983, when seeing a tandem bike inspired him to build up instead of out. He said his first tall bike measured 5.3 feet (1.6 meters), and they got progressively taller until five years later he was riding 18 feet (5.5 meters) in the air at Ciego de Avila carnivals.
