Cyclists Zip Down Clogged LA Freeways
last week 10 Los Angeles cyclists (illegally) took to the 405 and the 10 on the premise that riding on those infamously congested freeways at rush hour is no less safe than taking the Pacific Coast Highway.
Other LA blogs have picked up the video. Metblog called it "equal parts stupid and awesome," and Joke Is Up calls it a "great little bit of anarchy here in Los Angeles." Viewers at YouTube
seem similarly at odds. One poster says he "fell asleep b4 I got to the
part where the idiots got crushed by a Hummer," but another commenter
asks what I think is the million dollar question: "LA is made for cars.
Why are bicycles getting places faster?"
