ARTISTIC CYCLING

The first official artistic cycling World Championships were held in 1956. This sport is most popular in Germany, where there are no fewer than 10000 licence holders.

This sport is comparable to ice-skating and artistic gymnastics. The competitors (individuals or pairs) present a 5-minute programme set to music. The jury awards marks for the quality of the performance.

Artistic Star Award Scheme

CAHK has launched “Indoor Artistic Cycling Star Badge Award Scheme” since 1997. It aims at attracting the youth participation in artistic cycling so as to elevate the local level. The Scheme is sponsored by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and teenagers aged 5 to 20 are the major targets.

Participants will be arranged to join the systematic training and be required to be assessed after the training. Step-by-step training starts with easy movement and divides into six levels. A star badge will be awarded as long as the participant passes in one level.

CAHK annually conducts promotional activities for artistic cycling to the public and different groups, including Indoor Artistic Cycling Star Badge Award Scheme, demonstration, trainings in elementary to advanced levels, etc. Bikes and other relevant equipment will be provided by CAHK to all participants. Interested individuals / groups are welcome to contact CAHK at 2504-8171 for enquiry.
