Japanese Cycling Game Show: The Most Bizarre Biking Race Ever

By Monica Buck

The Land of the Rising Sun always had a thing for game shows, which were considered rather unusual (at best) by the rest of the world. And it is no surprise bicycles got to play a key role in one of them. With the seemingly unlimited surplus of new shows, it was just bound to happen. As you can see below, the Japanese decided to build a wobbly path in the middle of a huge lake, trying to find out if untrained men could ride on it to the finish line. Unsurprisingly, no one was able to do it. That doesn’t mean, however, that no one made it to the finish line. Watch the properly Japanese twist in the following video.
