History

Bicyclism was originally an idea conceived for Indies Vs PewDiePie jam on GameJolt, and remains playable there. We were at a cafe getting ready for the jam and there was a sign on the wall that just read 'Bicyclism.' The name was really appealing to us and sparked the idea for a silly bicycle themed game. We made the jam version in 72 hours, which was just a single player infinite runner with a physics controlled bike. A year after the jam, we decided to develop a full version of the game with multiplayer support and more levels. 6 months of part-time development later we were greenlit on Steam, and completed the game in the following 6 months.
