Video Friday 5/2/14

May is bike month, chalked full of great events and opportunity abound for discovering the joys of riding bicycles in NYC.

Here is a round of videos to get you pumped for the biking season.

First off, I was sent this by Right-of-Way safe streets activist Keegan Stephan. Last week was the monthly critical mass ride in Manhattan (4/25/14) which has been plagued by an over abundance of NYPD presence for about ten years. Frustrated with this unwanted attention towards a small group of riders, while motorists constantly break the law and kill pedestrians and cyclists, some of the riders decided to flip the switch. They stood on a corner during the ride with a speed gun and captured New York drivers doing “there thing”…speeding. This was a bit of a stunt to try and draw attention to reckless driving instead of a full scale intervention to a positive spontaneous group ride.

Here is a pretty amazing product. A new lock with an innovative locking system, that will drive any bike theft into a frustrated madness not seen since the Rubik’s Cube. Not sure about it’s practicality especially at a price $ 140.00 and I’m not sure anyone picks locks anymore. It does have a great design though, perfect for bike nerds everywhere. Introducing the “unpickable” Forever Lock.

Title: PedalBXL Rides Cargo Bikes On The Tour Of Flanders
Seen on:

Description: PedalBXL is a courier service in Brussels, Belgium, located relatively close to the famed Tour of Flanders spring classic. Epic roads out there, last year I had the opportunity to ride part of the Tour of Flanders course and it’s not something I will soon forget — steep climbs, serious cobbles, classic Belgian farmland views. Cobbled 22% slopes aren’t the easiest climbs I’ve ever done, and I’d certainly not want to do them on a loaded cargo bike or with a backpack full of gear. I like their style.

Title: 1930′s Paris Alleycat Film
Seen on:
Description: The first bike race probably happened just after the second bike was made — it just makes sense that people have been racing on open streets since cars first entered the picture. The text says that 150 riders race d a primarily uphill route 4 miles through traffic, changing clothes en route. It sure looks like an alleycat to me, some things never change.
