Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
2012 Race Report: Bike to the Future

Bike to the Future

Eight 80s-themed pilots propelled Bike to the Future through Baltimore, including active road construction in Harbor East. While briefly stopped in traffic, one of the back middle tires blew out so loudly the jackhammer operator paused.

This is not a bunch of bikes strapped together—the frame and flotation were carefully constructed for the race by this first-time Virginia team. They never swapped pilots and completed the entire course without pushing their craft, and received the ACE award for achieving this higher level of technical and physical competition. They also won the Engineering Award for their 8-pilot success.

As they reached the end of the pier:
1st Pilot: “Where are we going?”
2nd Pilot: “To the Future!”
—pause—
1st Pilot: “That’s great, yeah. Now where are we really going?”
