Super speedy descending and some Fleche recon in this week's edition of videos of the week
The latest and greatest videos from the world on two (and three) wheels, including drift-trikes, football on fixies and an in depth look at some of the most unique handmade bicycles. Get ready for some moving picture gems.
Drifting down the world’s steepest street
Looking like a fast version of real-life Mario Kart, three speed freaks take their drift-trikes down the world’s steepest street in Dunedin, New Zealand. Watch out for the impressive 360 spins near the end, and their sharp braking is another advert for disc brakes.
Cannondale-Garmin recce the Mur de Huy
It couldn’t be videos of the week without something pro-peloton related. Using their own Garmin Virb cameras, WorldTour team Cannondale-Garmin recorded their recce of the Mur de Huy ahead of Wednesday’s Flèche Wallonne. Who am I to comment… but I hope they’ll be going a bit quicker than this when the race hots up.
Highlights from Bespoked Bristol
We sent a team over to get the lowdown on all things handmade at Bespoked Bristol. Our team picked out six stunning bikes, and here you can watch the highlights from the show.
Taxi drivers and cyclists can get along, honest
This video has already had its moment in the sun when we ran it a few days ago. But it’s a nice friendly reaction in the sea of videos showing road rage and bad driving, so worth another look.
Hong Kong cycling demonstration team
Bikes aren’t just for racing or visiting the shops, as the Civil Aid Service Cadet Corps Bicycle Demonstration Team of Hong Kong shows us here. Unicycle tricks, football on fixed gear bikes and all sorts of crazy feats of balance.
