Tom Thivener, the Bicycle & Pedestrian Program Manager for Tucson, sent me this. Incredible footage of wacky bikes from long ago, including several designs I’ve never thought of or heard of.

Every Sunday, Mexico City closes down the entirety of Avenida Reforma between the huge city park and downtown. I knew about this and headed out to ride it. I thought it astonishing that the City would close an eight-lane boulevard that crosses the city [...]
. . . for my readers who do not hang out on bmx sites and are unaware of the things that are going on in the bmx world, I hereby offer you the following:
As a reader said on the site I stole this from, some of this stuff isn’t even possible in video games.
Readers of TBL no doubt remember the above YouTube video of the NYPD Officer lunging at and knocking over a bicyclist in a Critical Mass Ride.
Now it appears a grand jury has indicted the officer and he will also face charges for falsifying his police report!
