Woah. When he rode out onto the pier!
It's linked on Metafilter too:
Every time he reached a junction I found myself praying that he won't have to stop for any reason, oh god what would happen if he had to stop oh god it's like the bus from Speed oh god GET OUT OF THE WAY.
Edit--more comments there:
I was at CicLAvia (which was really very great indeed, I mean there must have been 100,000 people there, all having a great time) and was pausing by the side of the road in Culver City when this guy went past heading towards the beach. It was a genuinely moving, actually awesome, sight: the crowd parting, the whole road willing him on, as he peddled into the sunset. And my word, he was lethally high up.

that's about 12.5' higher than i like to be sitting on a bike.
I was scared just watching it!
You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
Saw this over on Honda-Tech.com. Was getting some serious vertigo there as he went out onto the pier!
Hey if you have to stop at an intersection just grab onto the cables holding the traffic lights!
