Just watched the video....holy crap! Man, I think I held my breath the entire time I watched this. Those guys are nuts! I ride out in the country where the worst I might have is a deer running out in front of me! Whew...think I'll stick to my kind of rides!

My worry was seeing one of the riders get squished between that bus and the car he cut off. I also wondered how a pedestrian would like a cycle smashing into them at those speeds. Ouch.

Road 22.5 miles with kids in the trailer as of 4/20/07

My goal is 500 miles by the end of the year.

"...one of those riders was later killed in a cycling accident."

MOM--go figure! I loved the adrenaline, but they got too close to vehicles for my comfort.

I couldn't get to the link. What is the video called, and I can search it in Bicycling?

I strongly recommend that you use the bathroom before viewing this video! It's from 2004 I apoligize if you've seen it before.

KIds, don't try this at home!
