Ever wanted to go upside down on a bike? This new exhibition at Sci-Tech will let you do just that. The main feature of this exciting new exhibition is an unique 360 bike that allows you to experience the concepts of free-fall, velocity and momentum as you travel in a loop. Up, Down and Around will allow you to explore the concepts of physics and have fun at the same time.
The exhibit took over 9 months to create and uses a fixed-gear bicycle that is attached to a pivot mechanism to a 360 loop-the-loop. How does it work? Riders pedal forward that allows them to build up speed, each time it rocks backwards. The rider has complete control of the velocity and speed of each rotation.
