Rollapaluza is a static cycling activity perfect for public engagement, marketing and publicity events, staff team-building or health / sustainable transport promotion, community outreach work and corporate entertainment
Riders compete in pairs or fours on static bicycles over timed sprint distances to the accompaniment of pumping music and MC generating a unique atmosphere. Rollapaluza is suitable for all from the age of seven upwards. Previous cycling experience is unnecessary and no special clothing or footwear is required to participate.
Previous corporate clients such as PwC, Nokia, Levi’s, Oakley, Seat, Adidas and Red Bull have used Rollapaluza for recruitment campaigns, product launches, public engagement campaigns, trade show activations and special events.
You may have seen Rollapaluza on TV: we have featured in New Tricks and Steve Backshall’s Deadly 60 on BBC1; A League of Their Own on Sky1; Amazing Greys on ITV1; The Cycle Show on ITV4; and Gamechangers on SKY Sports.
Rollapaluza is available client-branded, for an additional charge we can remove all Rollapaluza branding and assist you to fully brand the activity, equipment and team. View our branding guide here.
Our more economic standard Rollapaluza branded setup is suitable for many corporate events and some clients choose to “co-brand” our attendance at their event, the choice is yours. We can also work with your designers and event set / stand designers to create bespoke setups. Please see images below for examples of Rollapaluza and client-branded setups.

Our Two Events Formats
Have a Go : A specially designed 'Have a Go' format, a great side show to an existing event. All willing participants have a brief coaching session, as they are strapped in to the bikes in pairs. The starter then gets their ride underway; whilst they are racing we take their photograph and when they finish we award each participant a time card on which a results website address is written. All race data is recorded on our computer, each rider's time, average speed and cadence. Shortly after an event we can deliver the results and photo's for your use and /or post them on our website for the participants to view
Competition: Each four hour race event features a qualification where anyone can have a go, followed by a series of head to head knockout rounds and finals. In the knockout rounds men and women race independently creating two simultaneous competitions. The qualification is run as the 'Have a Go' format and the riders are classified in order of time with the quickest rider listed in first place. After qualification finishes the top four,eight, sixteen or thirty-two riders are taken through to the finals. The riders are called up in pairs and ride head to head to go through to the next round. At this stage the time for each race is less important; all one rider needs to do is beat the other rider. It all culminates in a breath-taking race to the finish to see who will be Rollapaluza champion of the day
Team: We offer a points based competition on the 2up rig and a number of team based formats on the 4up rig, more information available upon request
Case Study: Oakley 2013 Client branded custom setup
Our equipment is manufactured to our own exacting design. Atop the rollers are our top of the range Condor bikes on whom some of the best professional riders in the country ride day in day out. We have replaced the front wheel with a frame that connects the bike directly to the roller rig; this removes any need to balance, allowing the participant to safely pedal at extremely high cadences
Hands track the progress of the riders on a giant dial, viewable from up to fifty metres away our digital timing displays the length of time it has taken for the riders to cover race distance. The fastest rider of each race sets off flashing beacons so that spectators can see who has won the moment the race has finished. We have a large stable of bikes and Condor have custom made some children's racing bikes that allow us to offer the Rollapaluza experience to children as young as seven years old
