"I bike where bikes are banned," writes Perry. He and 9 friends illegally rode their bicycles through congested traffic on the Santa Monica Freeway west of I-405. Here's video of their exploit.

Whatever I said about California-centricism... I take it all back. When I was heading to see my sibs in the Turkey Day traffic and my bike was in teh car and I was going 9-12 mph and I wanted, wanted, wanted to abandon the car and ... do just that. RIDE. PAST THE CARS. Cultivate the culture. Nurture it. spread it.
yeeeee haw. whenever i visit my parents in orange county i wonder why people don't do stuff like that more often. looks fun, but i wonder how much the fine is. hell, i'd pay $50 a month for two years just to do that.
