A man who really knows how to use his Birdy!

Postby cjchambers » 7 Mar 2010, 12:55pm

Seen in Bath yesterday (click for a bigger image). Although you can't see it on this photo, he plays the violin as he walks the tight rope. And yes - he gets all of that stuff (including an amplifier) on his folding bike! Excellent stuff! Anyone else seen any unusual loads recently?

It looks like a slack rope to me :?
I think the fact the he plays the voilin and walks a slack rope sort of up stages him packing all his stuff onto a folding bike and trailer! :|
That said thanks for the post.

I'd fall off! Could say what could be done on it though.

I'd be more impressed if he rode the bike on the slackrope while playing the violin . . . maybe he's building up to it.

I cycled across central Edinburgh with an ice axe sticking out of the front pannier of my Brompton last week, does that count?
Of course it's a race...
