“Bike Lanes” video set to go viral

New York City cyclist and filmmaker Casey Neistat was so annoyed at being given a $50 ticket for “cycling not in the bicycle lane” that he decided to do something about the many obstructions that force him out of the bike lane on his way around the city. Through filming himself in a series of admittedly amusing crashes, Mr Neistat makes his point very clear.

The video has already attracted over 1 million views on Youtube in just 2 days and this looks set to continue. He hopes that it will give authorities a push towards punishing motorists and companies who block the many miles of cycle lanes throughout New York.

Here’s the video:

I'll admit to being a bit of a kit freak, but cycling is a great sport for that! I've ridden a bike since I can remember, and now mainly cycle on road and on tour. I completed JOGLE in 2010 and plan to tour Europe next year. This blog is my place for product reviews, guides and my opinions on cycling in the UK
