Evans Family SkyCycle
Learn About Counterbalance and Center of Gravity on this Wild Ride!
How the SkyCycle Works
The SkyCycle is a 90-Foot long cable securely fastened 15 feet in the air. A bicycle is tracked across the cable and a counterweight pendulum is on the bottom of the bike. This is what helps keep the bike upright on the cable. Riders are harnessed in for their safety and then cycle across the cable using counterbalance techniques to keep the bike as upright as possible.
