Walking your bike

May 31, 2007

I’ve been trying to explain to my children, and some other Boy Scouts, that you can obey The Law AND be a jerk.

When I need to get across a street on my bike, and the traffic is too heavy, I find a crosswalk, hop off, and become a pedestrian — who immediately has right-of-way over everyone, and I take it, immediately. Here’s two videos of the trick being done more or less quickly. I still need to work on my running mount.

Quick dismount

Leisurely dismount

(Cool socks, aren’t they? I got them at Vintage Etc near Porter Square.)
