This high-riding cyclist, spotted outside Four Barrel, was able to generate admiration from members of both the cycling and motorbiking communities, groups who often find themselves at odds with one another (usually over disputes involving the bike lane). While I tend to support anything that can elicit agreement between such diverse citizenry, and I applaud this guy for apparently commuting to work on such “cool shit,” I’ve got to wonder:
How is he going to get off of this thing? Does he need someone at his destination to hold the bike while he dismounts? Does he just pedal up to a parked car and step off onto the hood? Does he have to trackstand at every intersection since he can’t put his foot down?
These are questions that need to be answered!
