Freeway Bike Ride

Last week 10 cyclist in Los Angeles thought since LA's freeways are virtual parking lots during rush hour. That it would be just as safe riding the 405 and the 10 as it was the Pacific Coast Highway.

Other LA blogs have picked up on the video and LA.Metblog calls it, "equal parts stupid and awesome".
Opinions of the stunt have of course been mixed. My favorite response is on YouTube and asks the million dollar question. "LA is made for cars. Why are bicycles getting places faster?"
