Cycle Roller racing is a gymnasium sport in which Two cyclists sprint it out side by side on a set of rollers which are attached up to big dial whose hands show the progress of the ridersr as they race the (simulated) distance.
Cycle Roller racing although still popular, had its hayday in 1950s, when there were many open contests, held within other social events, eg often preceding films at the cinema or taking place in between dances at dance halls.
Balancing the bicycle without riding off the rollers is an extra challenge for the rider and requires much more balance and attention than other bicycle trainers.
Cycle rollers are a type of bicycle trainer which makes it possible to ride a bicycle indoors without moving forward. However, unlike other types of trainer, the rollers do not attach to the bicycle frame, and the rider must balance him or herself on the rollers while riding. Cycle rollers normally consist of three "rollers" (two for the rear wheel and one for the front), on top of which the bicycle rides. A belt connects one of the rear rollers to the front roller, causing the wheel to spin.
