Practicing that would be more fun than riding on a stationary bike all winter.

Artistic Cycling is big in Germany, and they have official UCI World Championships in this discipline. I'm still sorry I wasn't able to make the last Seattle Bike Expo where they had some German Artistic Cyclists performing. They are really, really good. How do you do a backward wheely? Where would you ever get the idea to do one?

It would help if you're FEMALE, Young, Beautiful, Extremely Talented and Athletic. Oh - and you will need a great sense of balance as well!

You know, those girls cheated, don't you? That's right. They don't have freewheels or brakes on their bikes, and they can peddle backwards. And someone put a straight fork under each bike. Gee... that makes it easy, right?

I'd love to do that, but I am not allowed to ride indoors.
