That'll show all those sissies with their triples what a double can do.

I wonder if he has suspension? I'd hate to see how his brakes heat up on a downhill grade.

It's not even a hardtail, let alone full suspension. I'll bet riding over those ties is rough!

Haha. I tried doing that once. I'm not the strongest cyclist, but at my highest level of exertion, I was rolling along at about 6mph. That's without towing anything.

Then again I once saw someone riding a , and it seemed to roll quite smoothly. I imagine the surface of a rail is smoother than the road.

The funny part is that the train cars are tied to the cyclist's 'nads.

The picture doesn't need more blur, it needs MORE COWBELL!

DONE! I bet myself I couldn't get 7 replies to that picture ... this makes 3x that!

I liked Phantomcow2's motion blur (forwards or backwards) and recursive's "Cycling On Abandoned [aerial] Railroads" was great.

What none of you guessed is that when I pulled that train I was using my fixed-gear!

This isn't a bad effort. Scroll to the bottom of the page there is a trike pulling a boat on a trailer.
