Having a bulletproof bike for when the SHTF is not a bad idea.

the risk those guys took to make this video was ENORMOUS. Always stay away from flooded areas, always stay sheltered under hurricane conditions. It may look fun, until someone gets hurt.

not cool

I’d be freaked out by being electrocuted or caught in some flooded drainhole. Good footage. RIP valiant bicycles, you were well used.

Fantastic footage. And while I usually shy away from criticizing random people on the Internet, this is monumentally stupid. They were lucky they weren’t killed. This video should at a minimum be shared with a disclaimer.
