If you were in Central Park yesterday, you may have thought you were seeing double. That's because the popular green space hosted a special twin-powered tandem bike parade organized by VH1 to celebrate the network's new reality competition series, Twinning. The double-trouble event, which kicked off at West 106th Street, took 175 sets of twins on a two-mile tandem bike ride through the park, and managed to break a Guinness World Record in the process.
The festive bike ride was quite a sight to see and managed to break the previous world record for the largest parade of tandem bicycles. The event served as a kickoff to unveil VH1’s new show, Twinning, which will see twelve sets of twins participating in a competition series for a grand prize of $222,222.22.
According to the show’s website, Twinning viewers will be treated to “double the meltdowns, double the hook-ups, and, of course, double the twists when twin teams are pushed to their limits in unexpected ways.” For those interested in watching this double-trouble reality spectable, the competition series will premiere on Wednesday, July 22nd.
