Yeah, I wish it made more sense too.

We’ll Wheel

Rock and Roll Sole
  (+1)

Each aluminum alloy sole is about one foot (35 cm) long and slightly convex on the bottom, less than œ inch (1 cm) thicker in the middle. At its front and rear are snap locks that firmly link it to any other rock and roll sole’s leading/trailing edge.

To join in the fun, buckle on a pair, hold a friend by the shoulders or waist and hook up to his or her soles. As you rock forward or backward together, a third person has a couple of seconds to lock on. The mass rocker keeps swaying as more join at each end. Finally, the 40th closes the gap and you’re a seven foot (2 m) radius, human wheel with leg spokes and two rims of soles. Amid screams and laughter, you all roll down the street.

The falling-in-love play it safe with a one-on-one swaying embrace, while the really adventurous lock their soles toe-to-heel, making a twenty man, narrow-rimed wheel.

       Oh yes! I could tell this was by you by the end of the first sentance [FJ]. Another lovely one.

       Except if you live in Holland. (picture of huge we'll wheel just sitting there, people at top dangling). I suppose you could probably get it going with some strategic knee-bending like on a swing?! Maybe.

       Super +. Perhaps an accompanying helmet could link up to form a hub allowing for the arms to be free for tickling etc.

       Oh, yes (picture), of course, I see (picture), very nice, everyone (picture) dangles and sways as they go over (I want a picture) and under the giant people shoe (picture) wheel.

       This reminds me of a creepy story where two villages fight each other, by constructing enormous man shaped frames and piling into them to form two giants.
