Believe it or not, helicopters are considered a reasonable way for the wealthy to get around in Sao Paolo, Brazil, where traffic is so bad the average commuter spends three hours stuck in traffic and where the super elite feel a need to be insulated from crime on the ground.

In an intermodal challenge, people commuted via car, bicycle, motorbike, helicopter, mass transit, feet and wheelchair.

Amazingly, the bicyclist won the challenge, beating even the helicopter commuter!
