How about bikes in Malls,
Arkady Ultim8 DownMall 2012
Seen on: www.pinkbike.com
the Skinny: On Saturday the 28th of January, Prague was host to the fourth edition of Arkady Ultim8 Downmall. This year in the mall – Arkady Pankrac. The race was attended by 30 professional riders specializing in three different disciplines – fourcross, downhill and freestyle. After two qualification runs only 15 riders get in a third and final run.
And who says the kids hanging out in the mall aren’t being productive.
Now take it outdoors, another one from pinkbike.
the skinny: With the recent mild winter in Victoria BC, Mark and myself were able to get out and take a few shots. We had a lot of fun with this edit, it is kind of a montage of random clips we have gathered over the last few weeks. Me and Mark both go to the same college, so it was an easy excuse for us to blow off class and make this. Hope you enjoy!

Speaking of the bikejerks, last weekend was the 15th annual StuporBowl in Minneapolis. Here is a video from the start:
Here is another one:
skinny: The “Gearunkie”, Stephen Regenold, Parker Roefanzo and I (T.C. Worley) compete in the 15th running of the StuporBowl Alleycat race in Minneapolis, MN. We poured into the streets with nearly 400 other riders to try to be the first in either the “stupor” (drinking) or “speed” categories. We placed in the top 20 for speed. SO fun! Long live the StuporBowl!
Congratulations to NYC’s own Crihs Thormann for coming in 2nd.
Road bikes get to have fun too, and do tricks.
Hey this could be the new sport of the future, indoor bike gymnastics. Maybe in Korea.
skinny: I came across these videos on Prolly and even though he points out they are a little dated, I’m soooo glad he still shared them. These videos are so well done that it was hard to stop watching them at work and wait until I got home.
The videos document a bike tour by a group of professional skateboarders who ride their bikes down New Zealand, hitting skate spots along the way. There has been a recent trend in skateboard culture that pairs skateboarding with Easy Rider-like motorcycles, but I had yet to come across skateboarders holding any interest in bikes, let alone bike touring. The melding is a little awkward, but the outcome fascinating. Read more here.

skinny: When I first met Ricky Feather, a few years back, he was on his BMX. He told me he was getting into framebuilding and months later, he sent me his first complete bike. Check out this video Hypebeast put together showcasing his company, Feather Cycles.
