    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.
    Sunrise saturday,
    I was biking the backroads,
    lost in the moment.

    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.
    Bring the pain.

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

    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.
