  1. I love the loop-de-loop at the end. Very reminiscent of boys today, clumped around with video cameras to watch their friend do a crazy stunt that will most likely end in him being carried away in pain.

  2. This is hilarious. I’ve been on group bike rides where the fixed cyclists will congregate off to the side on stops to do their tricks, and everything in this video is stuff that they would do, jumping rope included. Less falling and eating pavement though.
