Roda Gila (Crazy Wheel)

Text and picture ©Eki Qushay Akhwan

Roda gila (crazy wheels) is a kind of traditional acrobatic attraction where two or more motorcyclists ride and do crazy and breathtaking acrobatic actions in a cylindrical drum made of wooden planks about seven meters deep and 10 meters in diameter. Spectators have to climb onto a platform at the top of the cylindrical drum to watch their actions. I took this picture at a festival held at the Gasibu square sometime ago.
