Death-Defying Stunt-Cycling on a Citibike

borisbike That’s right — the bikes in this clip, the ones being fearlessly jumped across rooftops and ridden, tightrope-style, across bridge railings are your average, run-of-the-mill Citibikes; though, as part of the bike sharing system in London, where this was filmed, they’re known as Boris bikes.

It’s the same frame and construction as the Citibikes we know here in New York, though, which makes the tricks these stunt riders pull off all the more impressive (those things are clunky!). Watch in amazement, remind yourself it would be unwise to try any of this on a Citibike yourself, and console yourself with some of our AC Gears bike gear instead.
