Slow Bike World Championships

Bike as slow as humanly possible in order to take the title in this short distance race. Don’t mistake speed for a lack of technique and endurance; should your foot hit the ground or a single pedal spin backwards at any point, it’s an automatic disqualification. The last person to cross the finish line is the winner.
