Cycling Road (サイクリングロード) is a Third Stage obstacle introduced in SASUKE 26 to replace Floating Boards as the third obstacle. 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 Floating Boards. It was indirectly replaced by the relocated Flying Bar in SASUKE 27.

Confusion rose over the Katakana naming of this obstacle, as it was introduced in SASUKE 26 Navi as Cycling Road, which is also how Announcer Ogasawara Wataru refer it. However, the on-screen graphic shown during the broadcast said Cycle Road (サイクルロード) instead. G4 referred to this obstacle as Cycle Road in its Third Stage preview during American Ninja Warrior 2.

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.

Ninja Warrior UK's Cycle Road

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.

Ninja Warrior UK 2's Cycle Road

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, with the final wheel was removed, and the third wheel was raised. No one would attempted this version due to the difficulty of the previous obstacles.
