Physical Funness for the Motion Starved

Fit more fun into your fitness while exploring the outdoors.

Look where you’re going!

Rule #1 — Your bike goes where you look. Look at the ditch and you go in the ditch. Notice that the camera in this video, which is mounted to the riders helmet is always pointed just up the road, always focused on the best line of travel. Never does he look over at the many hazards, not at the dog and not at the tape when he gets close to it. He safely navigated this insane ride by looking only where he wanted the bike to go. And that ladies and gents, is what they call a man with superior bike handling skills.

Take note. Think about this the next time you’re out on a bike.

P.s. Watch this video in full screen or up on the wall if you have the capabilities. It’s cra-zy!

P.s.s This insanity  happens on the streets of Valparaiso, Chile. The Valparaiso Cerro Abajo Race is a legendary urban bike race.

It’s my hope to inspire “real people” to get off their butts, out of their ruts and on the road to becoming happier, fitter people through Physical Funness.

  1. Holy cow – that’s insane. So is this going to be your next challenge, after the stairs?

    🙂

    • Not likely. Anyone who’s ever ridden with me knows that I’m a “skills snob.” I like to run over people sans skills but I fear there’s no way in hell I have the nerve required to attempt such a mission. Anyway, they don’t let you take your bike with you when they take you away on the Life Flight chopper, and I never leave my bike unattended!

  2. I’ll watch your bike for you 🙂
