Default Jumping bike

When i was a boy i watched a Disney movie about a claver kid that made a bike that could jump. Main character could jump even over a fence if he tried hard. He used a combination of speed, muscle power and a rocket or pneumatic tube to have a jump. That was really impressive. As far as i remember the boy used pneumatic tube that was pointed down. Or may be some rocket.

I think that can be fun to try to make such a bike.

This is the movie:

That would be a hell of a kick in the nuts if you sit on it...

It should not be an issue if you do properly

Look here:

Note that the main character has to attain certain speed before he has a green light indicator for the jump
