We have a wide selection of what we call 'megabikes'. These are mainly multi-seat, human-powered machines which come with their own professional 'driver'. We usually bring one of them along to our larger public bike try-out roadshows, but can also supply such cycles in their own right. Our menagerie changes from time to time, as we discover new cycles, or construct them ourselves. We also have pedal-powered Scalextric racing games, KMX Kart Shows, and people-mover Rickshaw services. All are detailed below.
These remarkable and rare vehicles capture the imagination and steal the show. Everyone faces the centre and pedals. We provide a trained staff member to take the wheel and make sure passengers stay safe while they have fun. We currently have two seven-seater CircleCycles, and a five-seater Quintette. Our slideshow includes our two-seater ‘LoveBike’ because it comes from the same Dutch kinetic sculptor.
Our KMX Karts track, is an exciting addition to any of our roadshows and can be supplied in its own
right. We normally bring fifteen KMX Karts, but can stretch to twenty-five. These can be supplied
along with a megabike or two - a great combination for public events where fun is the keynote.
This one we made ourselves. Laid-back fun to enliven any event, and ideal for exercise-promotion. "Don’t be a couch potato like us..." Our sofa is sometimes used as part of our health awareness programmes in schools (see slideshow). For details of our Dynamo Activity Challenge for Schools click here.
Futuristic car bikes are ideal for family fun at any event. In certain controlled situations we may allow families to use these without our driver.
These racing games make a very fine portable attraction for almost any purpose. The faster you pedal the faster your car races round the track to beat your opponent’s. When you brake, your car brakes. These are ideal for Healthy Schools work, corporate fun days, and any public event. Our 'animateur' keeps up the excitement levels. We bring our own marquee. We can supply up to four two-lane sets, and can make sets to order. Suitable for seven years upwards.
Our modern tri-shaws can carry up to three passengers in comfort, over all but the steepest of terrain, and add a cosmopolitan atmosphere to any event. We provide skilled riders, who entertain as they pedal. Ideal for conferences and public events. We use a different version of this machine for our money-saving Green-Link delivery and distribution services for local authorities.
For the under-sevens we can supply a set of up to 40 very varied and unusual child-sized trikes,
rickshaws, tandems, handcycles, etc. These are very robust and stand up well to dodgem use. Ideal for
summer playdays in parks, or as an adjunct to any of our public try-out roadshows. We usually also
bring a tri-shaw which can give rides to four small children at a time.
