Cincinnati – July 2017 – Dangerwheel

While researching what to do for the year one event I found that was highlighted in red letters not to miss is Dangerwheel – Adult big wheel racing down a hill in Cincinnati!

East 12th Street in Over The Rhine is not the steepest street in town, but it is more than sufficient to get the riders moving quickly.

Aided by sometimes over exuberant pushers, the racers head down the hill.

Not satisfied with just going down a hill on a trike with no brakes or pedals, the audience pelt the contestants with water balloons.

The second round featured large balls in the course for the racers to ride through.

Without brakes mayhem usually ensued at the bottom.

In the end the entire event was great. We unfortunately were unable to stay to the end (they take about 7-8 hours to compete, we only had 4 hours) – next year we will spend the night in Cincinnati and stay for the entire event.
