It's sort of a thrill watching them, but Sweet Lord, use a helmet, mate! I don't know about NY, but if this was in Norway they would've been thrown in jail with the amount of red lights they ran on.

#3 It's an urban paradise imo.

"Insane" is correct, and it looks like the cameraman is just as insane :(

Well, as I say with almost every cycling video, I'm a cyclist myself, and I'm disgusted with these asswipes. Not only are they risking brain damage and death, but they're putting other people at risk, and are a shocking example of why cyclists are detested by so many people. Ambassadors for cycling that we could do well without.

NOthing like a big 2000kg V8 for a city car. I guess fuel is cheaper than water in the US of A :(|)

Crazy MFs. I could never live in a dense city like NY. My psyche couldn't handle it.

Running red lights on that traffic.. Just no. Otherwise no problem, good example of how people should be traveling instead of tons of metal burning oil to carry one person. Those streets would look empty.

There is a documentary movie about urban bike messengers called "Line of Sight" if anyone is intersted in similar POV bike videos, it's realy good...

Damn.. hadn't considered riding like that in my city. Certainly a way to ride.. though only if the pedestrian paths are blocked
