bike: just do it!

Yesterday bikers partying for the victory at the referendum tried to Critical Mass Palazzo Grazioli and were blocked by the police.

Casey gets a ticket in NYC for not riding on the bike lane.

Looks like we need in Rome and NYC some training administered by the average tough Berlin biker.

Thank you Nematode for posting Casey’s video! 😉

    Great film. Especially the bit where you ended up inside the truck. I salute your toughness (madness?) with all those crashes.
    Did you explain to the cop at the beginning why you had left the bike lane on that particular occasion (it wasn’t in the film) – or were you hoping to be fined as a political gesture?

    Hi B,
    a friend, Nematode, just sent me Casey’s video! I agree with you, Casey is incredible!
    Concerning political gestures, unfortunately I could not Critical Mass the police yesterday at Palazzo Grazioli here in Rome. But if you ever experienced the speed and determination of Berlin bikers (especially vs pedestrians and car drivers) you could imagine that their reaction to the police would have been quite different eh eh!
