You will see

  • A view of the future - will this be how we all get around in 20 years time?
  • The world whizzing by.
  • Your opponent pass above and beneath you.

Ride runs by request.

You can race at up to 50kph (30mph) against the clock, your friends or foes in a 600m race.

The bullet-shaped recumbent (meaning lie back) pods run under two inverse tracks that weave 200m long and ride 5m high. Feel the inertia as you swing around every corner and beat the rest to be the best!

For extra fun - team up with your friends for a tandem race or join forces against single racers to gain the winning edge.

Race and win prizes for breaking age and country records and have your name go on the Rail of Fame for all to see - or the biggie ...$1,000 cash if you can beat the current world record!

Then again, if that's too much like hard work just experience a gentle cruise and see the world from a different angle on the pedal -powered system that Google selected in 2010 as the most innovative in the world for future eco-friendly public transportation.
