Artistic Cycling is a form of competitive indoor bicycling which is half gymnastics and half courier delivery service. People do flatland tricks on fixed gear bikes to plesant songs in six minute heats. Judges judge the tricks based on how gracefully they are preformed and award points accordingly.
Routines are preformed with 1, 2, 4 or 6 cyclists at a time. The first unofficial artistic cycling competition was organized by German-American Nicholas Edward Kaufmann in 1880 so he could show off his badass fixie skills.
This is a historic photo of Kaufmann’s oft-old-timey-ho-surrounded bicycle.
The bikes are specially designed with tiny wheels to make popping wheelies easier.
