Man on Big Wheel races crosstown NYC bus…and wins Posted on Wednesday, July 17th, 2013 at 3:32 pm. PTWritten by Peter Cohen This one’s from a couple years ago, but it was new to me, so I figured I’d share it. lomifeh Not surprising in that he won. Surprising he did not get killed. NYC traffic is the worst. MrKahuna Judging by the person filming him, running is faster too. Moeskido Yeah, take that, affordable public transportation in a major city choked by too much single-user-per-car traffic. Kip Beatty I loved my Big Wheel as a kid, but oddly never considered it as a daily commuter. May have to find a used Green Machine for my daily work commute.
