Item #: SCP-3938

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-3938 is to be kept in a standard containment chamber at Site-13. The only furnishing permitted is a singular bike rack. SCP-3938 is to be equipped with a GPS tracking device at all times. Testing is limited to personnel with Level 3 or higher clearance.

Description: SCP-3938 is an animate bicycle. Between the handle bars at the front there is a cartoon face made of plastic. It has a round red nose, large eyes with oval pupils, and blue lips. Both of its wheels have an orange wheel cover with a red circle at the center. The bike seat is designed to resemble a sofa cushion with a backrest, and it has a seat belt that goes over the waist. Beneath the sides of the seat are radio speakers. Furthermore, two vertical antenna are attached to the back wheel, and they terminate in small flags bearing a stylized W. At the back, it has a white metal plate which reads "Dr. Wondertainment's Take-You-Anywhere Machine."

SCP-3938 is sapient and capable of vocalization in English. It has shown to be familiar with other languages, but due to lack of fluency it prefers not to speak them. Without assistance the item is able to stand up on its own, and wander around its vicinity at a slow pace. However, SCP-3938 claims that it can experience exhaustion from moving itself for prolong periods of time.

SCP-3938 exhibits extensive knowledge concerning geography and various landmarks. Whenever possible it will attempt to discuss them with personnel. It has stated that it is part of its intended purpose as an educational product.

When ridden by a human, SCP-3938 is capable of traveling up to ██ km per hour. Regardless of speed, it will sometimes leave a trail of flames, playing the songs "Speed Demon" by Michael Jackson or "Bat Out Of Hell" by Meat Loaf on its radio speakers.1 It is also capable of flight via unknown means, which it only performs to go over obstacles2 or at the request of the subject. During the ride, SCP-3938 will ask the rider if they have a specific location they desire to visit. When a location is given, SCP-3938 will take the subject to the specified location via flight or land; however, SCP-3938 will sometimes refuse and provide a reason in regards to certain locations. For example, requesting anywhere on the surface of the Moon results in SCP-3938 informing the user that a space suit is required. Upon reaching the designated location, SCP-3938 will provide a tour around the area. It may also provide suggestions.

SCP-3938 came in a large cardboard box. The box displayed images of SCP-3938 with a price of $35.99 (US) listed at the corner. It also has the caption "Paradox free!" The following is a description located on the box:

Oh, the places you'll go with Dr. Wondertainment's Take-You-Anywhere Machine!

Now you can go visit and learn of fun places old and far. You no longer have to see the world only in a book so go to any place! Wherever. Whenever. The past, present, or future! You can fly there or go on good old land! Wow!

Just be sure to wear a helmet, boys and girls, and don't feed the Dinosaurs!

For any questions, please contact Wondertainment Customer Service at 1-800-█████-████.3

From the description, it is assumed that SCP-3938 could perform time travel, although there has been no evidence proving that it can do so. See addenda.

SCP-3938 was recovered on 12/10/06 from an auction of Marshal, Carter and Dark Ltd. by Mobile Task Force Mu-3 ("Highest Bidders").

Addendum 01: The following transcript is an interview with SCP-3938.

Interviewed: SCP-3938

Interviewer: Dr. Rodriguez

<Begin Log>

SCP-3938: Hey there! How's your day been so far? Would you like to have a ride on me?

Dr. Rodriguez: No thanks, 3938. I just have some questions for you.

SCP-3938: Questions are a good thing. It helps us to learn. What would you like to know?

Dr. Rodriguez: Well, do you have any features we are unaware of?

SCP-3938: That's a bit silly, but I don't think so.

Dr. Rodriguez: Are you sure? Wondertainment products usually have an array of features.

SCP-3938: Hmm. Maybe I can go to any place in time, but I could be wrong though. Does it say so on my box?

Dr. Rodriguez: Well…

[Through an ear piece Dr. Rodriguez is instructed to deny SCP-3938's question.]

Dr. Rodriguez: No. There is no mention of it on the box.

SCP-3938: Really? That's… odd. I feel like I could, but if the box says otherwise then okay. Who am I to argue with it? Still, I can't shake the feeling that I did have that feature.

Dr. Rodriguez: How so?

SCP-3938: For some reason, I think I remember seeing a dinosaur once. Oh well! Likely just a random error in memory. It can happen to anyone these days. [Laughs]

Dr. Rodriguez: Right. I believe we are done for today. Thank you for your cooperation, 3938.

SCP-3938: You're welcome. Before you go, are you sure you don't want a ride?
