The Fun Bike Unicorn Club has an open call to all ye makers to “make, create, build a four-wheeled pedal-powered racer!” All karts will be eligible to race in the 7th Annual Bay Area Maker Faire on May 19th & 20th in San Mateo. Inspired by the Cycle Karts of the early part of the 20th century, and by a passion for all things bike – and for fun! – your kart must follow these few simple rules:

  • Must be a pedal-powered single-seater
  • Have no less than 4 wheels
  • Brakes!

Brakes are an important requirement because, well, there’s a reason this is billed as Death Defying Figure 8 Racing. Watch the video below to find out! And when you’re ready to join the races, submit your application here.
