Bike Athlon (バイクアスロン) was a medium-scale attraction available at Joypolis venues in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Similar to the more popular Power Sled, players would race against each other with full-size pedal bike "controllers" behind a large projection screen, and it is also similarly rumoured to have ran on Model 2 hardware. Music for the attraction was composed by Kazuhiko Nagai, and would later appear in the Sega Racing Best compilation album.

Only one Bike Athlon unit is thought to have been produced by Sega, initially making its debut at Kyoto Joypolis on opening day in September 1997. It was moved to Shinjuku Joypolis the following year, and relocated for the final time to Tokyo Joypolis in 2000, staying at the venue until its removal in the mid 2000s.
