Watch Cyclists Get Blown Backwards In A Race Because The Wind Was Too Strong

Video: Everything seems to be going swimmingly in this stage of the Volta La Marina in Benidorm but then all of a sudden the cyclists fall off pace of the car and seem to be slowing down to a legitimate crawl and then basically hit a full stop all at once. What happened? It was the wind. The strong winds pushed against the cyclists stopping them in their tracks and even blowing some backwards. The race was suspended because of it.


Turn An Old Drill And Bicycle Wheel Into An Impressive Frisbee Launcher

Video: Try as they might, some people just never seem to master the art of throwing a frisbee. If you’re one of them, in this video La Fabrique DIY shows you how to turn a bike wheel and an old drill into a frisbee launcher with impressive range.


Portland Teams Up With Nike For Bike Share Bicycles That Can Be Locked Up Anywhere

They help boost tourism and take some of the load off of a city’s public transit system, but keeping a bike sharing program financially self-sufficient has proved challenging for many cities. So Portland is teaming up with Nike for its new bike share program with bicycles that can be locked up almost anywhere.


These Parkour Bike Tricks Are Super Wild

Video: There’s a lot of good ways to experience a city. You can walk and enjoy the outdoors but that takes a bit of time. You could ride any above ground public transportation system but that traps you inside. You could drive a car but that makes you miss out on things as you focus on the road. Or you could cycle and have fun. Tim Knoll, BMX biker, chose to cycle around Berlin. And to our benefit, he also busted out a few wildly creative bike tricks while doing so.


The Evolution Of The Bicycle In Less Than One Minute

Video: The design of the modern bicycle seems rather obvious, right? Two symmetrical wheels attached to a simple frame. But it took a while for us to get to the streamline design of bikes today. Bicycles before were illustrious and ornate and frankly, ridiculous forms of transportation. Here is animator Thallis Vestergaard showing us the evolution of a bicycle for Visual Artworks.


Cycling Through This Moving Fun House Looks Like A Trippy Video Game In Real Life

Video: What a complete and total mind spin. Kriss Kyle and Red Bull teamed up for this totally trippy BMX video called Kaleidoscope that employs what is essentially a fun house filled with ramps that are moving around and fun little holes to spin in until you disappear and so much more cool stuff. It’s like a bizarre level in an old video game, only in real life (or like duh, being inside a kaleidoscope that’s constantly being turned and changing).


Corratec X-Vert 650B Electric Bike: Australian Review

Bicycles are great. They’re compact, quiet, and convenient — as long as you have a helmet, you can jump on and go anywhere, and you’re only limited by the energy in your legs. That’s just about the only limiting factor of bikes — the muscles of the humans riding them. But electric bikes? Now that’s another story.


Bicycling Through Forests And Moonscapes Lit In Different Colours Is So Cool

Video: Doing things at night is always a little more edgy, a little more scary, and a lot more fun. Doing things at night while lighting up entire forests in the Pacific Northwest and moonscapes in Utah in different colours is all of that night fun with a giant load of awesome added in. It looks like a completely different world.


The World's First Triple Front Flip Bike Trick Is Plain Nuts

Backflips, I get. You launch in the air, you tilt backwards, and you flip. Front flips are a whole other story. You launch in the air, you tilt forward (which is downward but you’re still going up), and then you flip? Crazy talk. And this triple front flip from Ryan Williams? Definitely more than three times the crazy. The thud and crashes and spills he took in trying this (even if it was padded ground) is nuts.


Three Months After Learning To Ride A Mountain Bike, I Tackled The Best Trails In The World

My goal for this trip was “Don’t Die!” But, when you get the chance to ride the best trails in the world, with some of the best riders, what are you going to say? For me, it wasn’t going to be “no,” even though I wasn’t in shape and in no way a good enough rider.
