Ridiculous bicycle video of the week. This one is a compilation of photos, many of which I had never seen before, and a few of which made me laugh out loud here in the Mexican internet cafe.

Bicycle Humor of the Week

8 01 2010

Today’s a double whammy. The first is this video of a guy stopping two thieves with a bike… but not in the way you’re probably expecting…

The other is this photo, which I borrowed from Dave at DrunkCyclist.com:

Ridiculous in so many ways… thank you Nick for the link.

New Goods, Good News

10 12 2009

1) Tiny News. Ride for the Trees partners discover a new orchid, the world’s smallest, in a reserve here in Ecuador.

“A previously unknown species of orchid, the world’s smallest, has been discovered inside the Cerro Candelaria Reserve by our partner Fundación EcoMinga in the Andes Mountains of central Ecuador. The reserve, established by EcoMinga thanks to the support of the World Land Trust, protects 5,221 acres of wet cloud forest and páramo (natural high Andean grasslands) on the Amazonian slope of the Andes.”

2) A reasonable, hopeful article on the COPENHAGEN CLIMATE SUMMIT. My favorite parts:

“we do not need to know the precise impact, and we do not need to have all the answers in order to start reducing greenhouse gases… What is the incremental progress we can expect out of Copenhagen? Some if it has already taken place. In the United States, the EPA has started the process of regulating Carbon Dioxide under the Clean Air Act. China, India and the U.S. have all announced national emission reduction targets. But more is still to come. When the conference ends on December 18th over 100 heads of state will be present in Copenhagen.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/steven-cohen/climate-politics-and-cope_b_387029.html

3) Received this text from a Peace Corps Volunteer who lives in the Amazon where the police captured me two weeks ago: “You’ll be happy to know that 4 people were detained today for cutting off heads here in Macas. Lol. Guess you were innocent after all.” Hahaha…

4) Knee-slappin’ video o’ the week: This week’s humorous cycling video is a compilation of crashes that aren’t quite bad enough to make you hate me for laughing at these people, but are certainly awkward enough to bring a smile to your face. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxqh7ENJA_4  The best one is definitely at 55 seconds.

Hilarious Video of the Week: Bicycle Race Prank

13 10 2009

Some roadies fake a race finish behind some unsuspecting casual cyclists in a park. In the end the casual cyclists win the race, get interviewed, and accept awards at the top of the podium.
