Now THIS is amazing riding

Check out this U-tube video. I wish I could ride 1% as good as these girls.

It would be more impressive than trackstands at stopsigns and stoplights.

I would fall out of bed if I even dreamed of doing any of those stunts. Simply amazing stuff.

And they are doing it all without clipless pedals. I would not or could not even dream of doing those kinds of stunts.

It's a bit cruel to post that vid in the 50+ forum. Even if you add their ages the girls don't qualify! I'm just happy getting on & off my bike without stumbling.
