The Cycles: International Grand Prix Racing is a 1989 computer game developed by Distinctive Software and published by Accolade.

Laguna Seca and Goiania circuits are not available when you choose 125cc bike.

It was released for the Amiga, Commodore 64, DOS, Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum.

How to play[edit]

More like a simulation than an arcade game, unlike Sega's Hang-On and Super Hang-On, the player has no time limit to clear races. If the player crashes, they're out of the race. To win each race, the player must get through the finish lines. The player can change the number of laps for a race.

The game has several modes which it can be played in:

  • Championship: Choose a bike, not a track. If the player is qualified for race, he can proceed to it.
  • Practice: The player chooses their bike and track.
  • Single Race: Player chooses a bike and track. If the player is qualified for race, he can proceed to it.
