It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to paint it.

My bike has 80 cubic inches! I wonder if it could learn to do that?

Self driving cars are bad enough. They're creating more idiot drivers that don't pay attention. nono

I have owned this bike which is a 1977 Schwinn Traveler since 1982 and never really rode it back then much as I was working and got all the exercise I wanted ,but since 2012 I was riding it at least 3 times a week,,for about 3 miles a day ,, but that ride dwindled down thru the years up to this year and now I have a torn meniscus in my left knee .. I still would like to ride it here in the neighborhood ,,but it would have to wait until surgery on my knee if I need it .

Sorry , missed the video you shared ,, now after looking closer , I see what your question was asking .. It is so hard to believe but yet is true .. thanks for sharing

Hi EVERYONE! I have ridden all types of bicycles. Penny Farthing down to a 20 inch trick bike. I have ridden bicycles since I was four, that makes 68 years. Unfortunately bikes of all kinds are not a good idea around Orlando/Kissimmee, FL. We have the highest rate I believe in the US for car/ bicycle deaths. I have been involved it the safe trials projects in Central Florida. Many time it is not the motorists fault. I'm two weeks into back surgery recovery and months to go, but if I'm careful I should be riding Seniors division next spring. The reason most people don't like bicycling in wide open spaces is because the bicycles are NOT set up to the persons size and weight. Look up on line to see how to properly set up a bike. Bicycling is the only exercise a human can do to assist ones heart in pumping blood up from the legs to the heart. This advertisement brought to you by The National Bicycling Association, or something like that. And if you don't want a bicycle there is nothing like a Harley! Doc.

Yep, that "April 1st." rollout date was a sneaky trick!

I once saw a bicyclist nearly get run over. He was riding on the wrong side of the road, and the guy in front of me in the left turn lane took off as the bike was entering the intersection. Narrowly missed him. The bicyclist was wearing a helmet, unfortunately there was nothing inside it, and it probably wouldn't have done any good.
