Riding a Bicycle With Lights on Its Wheels Is Basically Tron

By Casey Chan on at

Bicycles with lights ringing their back wheels and expert visual editing basically turns regular mountain biking into light cycles on The Grid in Tron.

It’s already an incredible effect when viewed in real time, because the lights start spiralling with the wheels but reaches another level with some post-production editing. That's because the frames get stitched up to look as if the lights were leaving colourful trails in nature.

Light Cycles was made by Mike Gamble with the VFX being done by Thomas Wood. [Mike Gamble Media via Colossal]
