In honor of Rome’s 2,762nd birthday, the city has put on a number of historical celebrations, including this modern-day chariot race at Circus Maximus.
Instead of live horses and full-sized spiked chariots, this Circus Maximus chariot race used specially-rigged bikes made to look like horses that pulled two-wheeled chariots around the historic loop.
