I've seen similar footage from London and Melbourne
Oh, that looked like fun.
I was thinking, freaking around corners - yikes! A car is one thing but pedestrains - then I noticed the dudes standing watch on those corners...
I must admit I was looking at ally-cat racing recently.
I would think the participants should pay the fines after all don't the participants decide if they behave in a manor that they will get a fine?
Also aren't there legal issues about encouraging people to break the law.
But what the heck I am happy to assist in organizing one.
As long as I won't loose my house if someone gets a clever lawyer.
wow, that Shanghai video is nuts. Riding like lunatics, on opposites sides of the road, dodging cops, dropping bikes to get your wrist band, dodging other riders etc. Crazy. I am sure car drivers will be up in arms about it. In saying that, I love the idea.
Pretty sure there was one held about a month ago at tuxedo cat. I didn't end up making it, so I'm not sure how many ended up racing, but I'd be keen to get involved.
My guess is it's highly discreet to avoid issues with authorities?
Any idea on details of the event?
my bad, at format, not tuxedo cat, here was the facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/254814807932519/
Yes, there was one held here recently.
Like all these things, it'll have to bend to the culture of the city - much of the riding in the first video wouldn't be tolerated here by the community and so should be discouraged (such as by making the rider pay any fines for example).
Mental! Do that in Adelaide and then the car/truck/non cyclists will have even more LEGITIMATE ammo.
Absolutely stupid idea.
This is my concern as well. Im all for fun and some risk taking but the PC people out there will have a field day on cyclists if the behavior of what they do in other countries is ever shown here.
