In the farther outer rings of the galaxy, the growing sport of Turbocycle racing is gaining in popularity among the more daring citizens of the populated worlds. It’s extremely dangerous, highly illegal, and very profitable for those with the reflexes and building skills to win frequently. Many novice racers, and more than a few experienced ones, die on the racetracks of the Turbocycle League.
Balance is everything for this Turbocycle. It has huge wheels that when running act as enormous gyroscopes to keep the bike extremely stable. It actually isn’t a real cycle, as it has four wheels, but each pair of wheels is tied together, and the vehicle turns and moves like a bike.
The Podcycle was inspired by all the nifty Pod variations on Lugnet with a little bit of Tron Lightcycle design thrown in for fun.
