    I didn't know there was a helicopter overhead. In my rush and excitement to get away, I guess I blotted out the sound!! I think I set a speed record for bicycles on highways, though.

    I suspect that truck driver had some explaining to do.

    That's a great video and a fine example of creative editing.

    The guy on the bike is edited in, he wasn't on the original video. The first "police car" is the car that is being chased in the video; it's been edited to add the white spot on the roof and the red/blue lights. You'll notice that it's quite a bit smaller than the real police car behind it. The truck drivers ended up stopping the bad guy.

    Wasn't that part of a Specialized viral video campaign? I think it came out at about the same time, anyway.

    Say it isn't so.
    We nearly had a folk hero. If this thing goes viral the Highway Patrol are in for some weird times ahead.

    You had me there for a minute.

    I was thinking, "What is this guy riding, and what kind of speed is he on??????" I could use a shot of that!!!!!

    The rider was about to be my new hero........

    It wasn't me, and I can prove that I'm not that fast.
