This past Saturday, Newmindspace, the group behind the Bubble Battle and Pillow Fight, held the first NYC Big Wheel Race 2008 in Central Park. With directions like, "You'll need a helmet and other protective gear. Your vehicle's seat must, at its lowest point, be lower than 12 inches. That's low. Wheel size is open. Rubber wheels are strongly discouraged," a number of Big Wheel enthusiasts appeared in elaborate costumes to race down the hill.
