Velodrome jousting

  (+5)

Two bicycles, racing around the velodrome in opposite directions, their riders equipped with foam lances. Points are scored for time (over, say, a ten lap race) but also for hits on your opponent.

Mentioned in my anno. Potentially annoying music [notexactly, Mar 30 2016]

       // foam lances //   

       No.   

       Titanium lances with tungsten-carbide tips.   

       Bun witheld pending a massive increase in potential lethality.

       If different weapons were used this would offer the prospect of an entire evening of entertainment. Lances, mace-and-chain, big tennis racquet, rubber chicken etc.   

       I also like the idea of a tandem bike with the peddler (dressed in those tour de france bike duds) and the weapon-user. I envision the weapon user as a clown; in fact both are clowns and the peddler guy keeps griping at his weapons guy for interfering with the peddling by swiping at the enemy as they ride by.   

       Yes, in my mind this has become another clowns on bikes idea.   

       Oh, yes: the single clown peddling away on his piece-of-crap bike could catch the fast bike as it passed and tow along behind (apparently without the knowledge of the clown on that bike), then use it to lever himself forward in time to win.

       Did you just propose another time travel idea ?

       You mean: "Will you have just proposed another time travel idea?"

       Chariot racing. Four cyclists instead of horses.

       Would there be a Ben Hur clown? Ideally using a whip with a rubber chicken at the end.

       Tandem bicycle jousting is also already a thing (at least once): [link]
