In this context it means biking as slow as possible on a 11 meter track accompanied by live music. As the world around us is fast-paced, we go back to first gear to snap out of the daily rush. Aim is to bike as slow as possible … as long as possible without crossing the lane and without touching the ground. Participants are challenged to cycle more focused, sur place and technically.
This project has been realized in Helsinki festival, carfree Sundays (Hasselt, Brussel, Leiden), Fahrradschau Berlin, Streetlife festival Munchen, COP22, and many more, and everytime it was striking that bypassers quickly got excited and wanted to participate in this contest.
Because of the humor and the presence of an enthusiastic presenter, people step out of their comfort zone and participate. The improvised music by live musician makes it even more exciting.
