We had a blast
Car Park Cannon Ball is introduced in 2017 by Katusha and à BLOC. It’s a new and spectacular race-format, transforming a car park into a cycling arena. The riders are at the centre of a great spectacle, but it’s hard to tell who is enjoying the effort more: the riders or the fans. In short: a downtown car park becomes a night out, as urban life meets urban cycling.
Celebration is a huge asset of Car Par Cannon Ball. The finish area becomes a party place. With a Bicycle Bar, street food and good music. The DJ sets the tone pumping out the tunes, the music mixes with the roar of the crowd. The riding crew are all there, mingling with like-minded party goers, discovering the enjoyment of a night out in a carpark with no cars in sight.
Check out our Facebook pages to see how we enjoyed #CPCB in Adelaide (AUS), Eindhoven, Maastricht and Christchurch. We will soon come up with new events, more info on www.carparkcannonball.cc. We hope to welcome you there.

#CPCB: kings and queens
Individual qualifications determine the starting order for the shoot-out finals. Riders go head to head to the top of the carpark, where the crowd awaits them in the celebration area. Winners are crowned Car Park Kings and Queens.

Epic storiesWe ride together
We love stories from the peloton, they enrich our lives. Especially the ones of suffering and achievement. Stories are told when drinking à BLOC. We appreciate that a good story grows stronger over time. It’s one of the reasons we ride. Want to share your story?Contact us
