Biking Through Hurricane Sandy
This first video is a bit of footage just as the storm started rolling in, when the streets were merely wet, the wind was gusty, and if you weren’t on a bridge then actually riding a bike in the mess was possible.
This second video is post-hurricane footage of someone who just needs to get somewhere and is willing to bike through a flooded street to do it. I’m quite impressed by his skills, though he’s probably got some hub repacking in his future. The firefighters waiting for him on the other side seemed pretty concerned/amused, however. Sign that guy up for cyclocross!
