Extreme Olde Timey Bicycle Maniacs

Dr. Fong Says:
Back in my day we had some seriously death defying acts.

Above is a video of the "Well of Death" act performed by a small carnival in India.

These kids today think they are tough and dangerous with their fancy dirt bikes.

I saw the very same act performed at a German circus in 1907 and it was done on a bicycle!

Down below the well was it soft and yielding sand like in the video? Nope, the original act was done above a pit of ferocious man-eating lions. Take that 21st century!

As a little bonus I bring you the famous bicycle loop de loop pictured below.

Wall of Death??? Pah... try driving on the ordinary roads.

Now if the cars went in one direction and the bikes in the other.........

I still think the bottom should be a horrible snake pit.
