And why not? Bike surfin’ is quite impressive.
Via Treehugger (where there are more bike surfin’ videos to enjoy). And I like what they have to say about it:
Why is this on a site about sustainability? Because yet again the sheer versatility of the humble bicycle is demonstrated: transport, commuting, cargo hauling, racing, recreation, touring … and extreme sports.
Yes, yes, yes! Thanks, Treehugger.

In Copenhagen, the first pedal-powered Christmas tree has made an appearance just in time for the upcoming U.N. Climate Conference in Copenhagen.
According to the report in this video, this tree is the greenest tree ever. Well, based on the equipment needed to power the lights, the bikes, etc. I find that hard to believe. A tree in the ground is greener, no? Ok, but in all seriousness, this is a very cool idea. Big props to Copenhagen.

This film looks great! I had no idea that the Beauty and the Bike documentary – which examines reasons why British girls stop cycling, while their German counterparts continue to do so – was about to premiere.
This film, by the Darlington Media Group and the Darlington Cycling Campaign asks one simple question: Why do British girls stop cycling? From what I can gather from the short introduction above, the result is a poignant film with answers and suggestions that come directly from the girls themselves. And what is the answer, you might ask? It’s the infrastructure, stupid.
I look forward to watching the whole thing and will report back with a review.

Cozy Beehive recently wrote a post yesterday about a very cool human and pedal-powered sky ride – the Sky Bike! Since I posted another video about the human and pedal-powered PARKcycle earlier this week, I thought it would be appropriate to stick with the theme. The Sky Bike was inspired, in part, by none other than the old favorite E.T flying bike scene.
Enjoy! Hope your Hump Day goes flying by.
