I'm actually totally for that. Anything that can get those patronizing CNN snots' panties in a wad is AWESOME.

They appear to be pedaling. What would make it even better would be to attach parachutes to the front handlebars. I can see a couple of different degrees of excitement in that....not sure that they would though. Wink

It would be better if a relic or phantom from the triangle cruised by.
Like maybe a refugee or escapee from the Disney Detention facility prank.
Perhaps an Adventure Land worker caught in an emotional collapse, flying a college banner from the uni they flunked out of?

Concepts:
Ghostbusters meet the Weather Channel.
Wolf Blitzer vs Irmazilla

None of this stormsationalism will ever rival a real Fukashima and quake-surge.
I didn't see anyone joy-riding their bicycle then.
And truck or boat surfing will never be an Olympic event or venue.

Or mapped radioactive contamination

Heck, that's near half-the-planet, not just a couple of backward Southern US states that vote republican. Hurricane Irma would be a little speck up there in the corner.

I'll bet they got the KOM.

Hard to tell who is more foolish; two guys having a good time riding bikes or a reporter standing there telling the world about coconuts.

Hey, self-importance is a virtue, so the CNN chick is excused.

By the way, I'm extremely good-looking...

One of the guys was Lucas Brunelle.

For those not familiar, Lucas made fixie videos back in the day. This is one of his newer works.
