Parabounce (the company) is an innovative concept originated by Steve Meadows of Los Angeles, USA. The idea was to have riders pedalling around the sky inside a huge air-inflated dome. One prototype was constructed and tested inside a large A-frame building in Lower BC, Canada. It functioned as expected, and by all accounts, was flown safely outdoors in the Los Angeles region, with safety tethers attached.
