How (not) To Ride In The Snow!

Postby Simpleone on Thu 18/Jun/09 10:32am

While the majority of us would be keeping warm inside during the wintry blast lately its not the case down south in Dunedin.  We were sent a few shots of jimmy on his fixie bike having fun in the snow.  Jimmy has gone south to studybut in true rebellious student style he seems to have given up on helmets and gone for the “if I close my eyes no one will see me” approach.

 You’ve got to give him 1 out of 10 for style though!  To be fair though he did venture almost 50mtr’s from his front door so it was a big day on the bike all things considered

maybe he's hoping he'll crash it so he doesn't have to hand it over to a new owner :

I hope not as there is a new one on its way to him shortly!

A Cahrge Slug Freeloader or something like that.
