    As a cyclist and a devoted madman, I can safely say that really is mad. I need new pants. :eek:

    Thanks for the link. It's given me an idea...

    Whoa - that was rather crazy. And very cool (except for the Guns'n'Roses soundtrack). A bit different from my daily ride to and from university in Copenhagen - where bikes are the kings of city-traffic.

    And mad jew, whatever your idea is - first of all - don't do it. And secondly - remeber to tell us about when you've done it anyway ;)

    Couriers are nuts.

    I've done the 5 Borough Bike Tour the past few years (40 mile loop through NYC where they close the road to cars), and sometimes we ride in Manhattan after the official ride ends. It's a nice rush, even though we were making a point to stop at red lights & crosswalks!

    Cool - It's a lot of fun taking over the city like that, huh?

    I was amazed at how many people do it the first time I went.

    If only there was somthing like this in London- there are lots of Critical Mass rides, but they're really slow and full of hippies, squat-dwellers and soap dodgers (I say this in the most respoectful way).

    My commute into london would be great of I could tag along with nutters like them!

    WHOA! :eek:

    That makes the few rushes I had in my city look like child's play, that stuff is insane! I love the tailer on the BMW, nice touch for a break :rolleyes:

    Awesome video, thanks for the link.
