10 and 405 Freeway Ride, on Bicycles

Disclaimer: It's not legal to ride your bike on the 405 or the 10. So kids, don't try this at home.

Via WestSideBikeSide, last week 10 cyclists took to the highways arguing that riding on a highway at rush hour is no less safe than riding on the PCH.

Other blogs have picked up the video. Metblog called it "equal parts stupid and awesome," and Joke Is Up calls it a "great little bit of anarchy here in Los Angeles." Viewers at You Tube seem similarly at odds. One poster says he "fell asleep b4 I got to the part where the idiots got crushed by a Hummer," but another commenter asks what I think is the million dollar question, "LA is made for cars. Why are bicycles getting places faster?"
