Heavy Pedal Bike Rodeo
IInspired by traditional American rodeos, Cyclecide creates comedic skits and stunts featuring hand-built untamed metal steeds and their bike riders as rodeo clowns, stunt riders, and beauty queens. Cyclecide ropes the audience into their show, orchestrating contests of bike-riding skill, such as barrel racing, piñata-bashing and tall bike jousting. The group’s mariachi country-punk band “Los Banos” provides the lively backdrop for the proceedings. Emboldened by the success of the bike rodeo, Cyclecide has also built the country’s one and only pedal-powered carnival midway, which began with the exciting Dizzy Toy, progressed to the thrilling Pedal-Powered Ferris Wheel, and then kept growing, adding the sweetly nostalgic Bicycle Carousel, the amazing Cyclofuge, the charming Flight of the Bumblebee, the cacophonous Axe Grinder, and more. Little kids, big kids and kids-at-heart can all participate in Cyclecide’s shows now, whether by tackling a bike during our rodeo skits or riding one of the pedal-powered carnival rides.
Cyclecide has toured the rodeo and carnival midway to numerous venues around the United States and Mexico, including multiple appearances at Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, Stagecoach Festival, Burning Man, Bumbershoot, Tour de Fat, Maker Faire, and more.
