With prizes for most original vehicle and best costume, I’m wishing I had heard about the NYC big wheel race a bit sooner…

Bring your big wheel, trike, skateboard, velocipede, or handmade contraption on wheels along with your superhero costume to race down the Great Hill in Central Park against the greatest front and rear axelers.

If you do manage to get a vehicle together, wear a helmet!

2nd annual NYC Great Big Wheel Race
Saturday, October 10, 3-5:30pm
Central Park Drive, 104th St east side
