Manual Auto-cycle

Manual Auto-cycles are found in the centre of The Empty Throne Room. Players can pedal on them to power the Refinatrix.

Cycling on an Auto-cycle requires 65 Agility (cannot be boosted), and gives Agility experience every 1.8 seconds. This 3.8 experience at a time is received normally, but this amount is ten times higher (38.2 experience) if using an empowered Auto-cycle. Two of the Auto-cycles are operated by workers.

As the empowered Auto-cycle changes quite consistently, it is possible to perform this task semi-afk by setting a timer at an interval of ~41.41 seconds to ring, giving enough time to change the cycle and profit off the 900% experience boost. (This is the timer as of May 13th, 2020, updated from the 1:00-1:04 minute timer used previously.)

It takes 5.4 seconds (9 ticks) to dismount the auto-cycle before you can click the next one; setting a metronome to 100bpm and clicking with a 9 beat gap will allow you to get onto the next auto-cycle without wasted clicks.

It is worth noting that after you have reached the cap of 800k experience, you can no longer gain xp from that skill (Agility). You can check your progress with Celia Diggory.

This is the fastest known method of collecting both Strange and Golden Agility Rocks.
