Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

That was worth the wait. Pretty badass $#%^, if you ask me. Reminds me of my commute (though I'm not nearly as crazy as they are). Notice, though, most of their stuff is around slow moving vehicles on decent pavement (decent by NYC standards). I'd love to see a video of them bombing down Broadway from W181st going uptown -- about a 1 mile descent on crappy really pavement with cars, buses and cheese wagons pulling out from everywhere (incidentally this was the warmup to my commute this summer ).
