Bike enthusiasts flocked to the streets of Los Angeles to take part in the sixth CicLAvia. The event attracted over 150,000 people to ride on a network of streets that were cut off from car traffic and stretched from downtown all the way to the ocean.
The CicLAvia event serves as a reminder and a celebration of the simpler forms of transportation, and some think that it just may turn L.A. into a more bike and pedestrian-friendly city.
However, a video of a man riding a 4,4-meter bicycle called 'Stoopidtall' through the streets of Los Angeles is going viral online.
Stunt cyclist Richie Trimble staged the stunt to celebrate CicLAvia - an LA-based festival of alternative transportation.
Two friends held the bike while he climbed up into the saddle before setting off, towering over other cyclists and vehicles.
