Great Big Wheel Race NYC

5th Annual NYC Big Wheel Race
Central Park, Enter at 106th & 5th Ave., Manhattan

Welcome back to Fluff’s 5th Annual NYC Big Wheel race. The past 5 years have shown us the marvels of madness with Ice Wheels, speed trials and countless four-wheeling events on 3 wheels. We’re back to the broo ha ha that started it all.

Bring your own Big Wheel. This includes: Big Wheels, trikes, velocipedes, skateboards you can sit on and control, ice boxes, toilets with wheels, soapbox vessels or other hand made or rehashed contraptions.

The rules are as follows: your seat or bottom must be no higher than 12 inches above the ground. Avoid rubber wheels… plastic or other is favored. Wear safety gear. Riders have been known to break 30MPH! This is open to everyone. You ride at your own RISK! We’ll use both the Rocket-path and the Danger LOOP.

COSTUMES: Superheroes are encouraged to dress the part and ride as the heroes they are. Wonder Woman, we miss you, please come back!

PERFORMERS: If you’d like to play your guitar, bring your hoop, spin poi or teach us all how to paint small children’s faces please do so.
