The Cycling Road (サイクリングロード) is an obstacle introduced in SASUKE 26 replacing the Floating Boards as the third obstacle of the Third Stage.

It consists of four wheels spaced out over a large distance. With the second and fourth wheel placed lower than the other two.

Competitors must throw enough momentum on each wheel to reach the next wheel.

It acted more of a strength drainer, as all four competitors who attempted the obstacle, cleared it with much less difficulty than the Floating Boards. It was removed in SASUKE 27.

This obstacle was introduced in SASUKE 26 Navi as the Cycling Road. While announcer Ogasawara Wataru also referred to this as such, the onscreen graphic shown during the broadcast said Cycle Road (サイクルロード). G4 referred to this obstacle as the Cycle Road in its Stage Three preview during American Ninja Warrior 2.

American Ninja Warrior Appearances

American Ninja Warrior 4's Cycle Road in Northeast and Southeast regions

The Cycling Road (called as the Cycle Road) appeared as the ninth obstacle on American Ninja Warrior 4 during Northeast and Southeast region finals. This time, the obstacle took out competitors (although only 2 competitors, both of them during Southeast regional finals), likely due to fatigue from the previous obstacle (the Salmon Ladder) without any rest.

Other Appearances

On Ninja Warrior UK, the Cycle Road appeared as the fifth obstacle during the semi-finals. Similar to its appearance during American Ninja Warrior 4's Southeast region finals, only two competitors failed on the obstacle.

Then, on Ninja Warrior UK 2, the Cycle Road appeared as the fourth obstacle during the finals' Stage 2. However, the number of wheels was reduced to just 3. Also, the obstacle was unattempted.
