The Friday Cyclotouriste

a geo-photoblog chronicling my "excursions velo"

Bicycling Culture……”Le Velo” and “I’m on a (mother-bleeping) Bike”

without comments

Two video parodies — that I’m assuming were made by bicycling enthusiasts — which mock the unfortunate pretentiousness so often demonstrated by certain classes of cyclists.

The first video is from the lycra-clad Euro-racer’s perspective. There’s some hysterical satire in here. The first thirty seconds are quite rich and there’s another sequence from about the 1:30 to 2:00 minute mark that had me rolling on the floor (“Le Pelotan!”).

By the way, this was clearly filmed on Panoramic Highway or Ridgecrest Blvd. overlooking the Pacific Ocean. If you’re interested, I’ve posted many images of this gorgeous stretch of road on this blog.

The second video is presented from the righteous, urban cyclist’s perspective. Mind you the video is what is called  — NSFW — not safe for work — due to the rather crude, in your face language.

But if you’re interested, check it out on YouTube, where some people seem to think the video is celebrating bad behavior rather than calling these kind of cyclists out.
