Videos from LA's bike culture underground

There is no doubt that LA is dominated by the automobile. People spend hours in traffic with six lanes in both directions on many of the vast networks of freeways in this West Coast city.

There is also a really vibrant and amazing bike culture out there, taking it two the strees and highways, which is illustrated in these two videos.

One comes from Ross Harris, fellow Bicycle Film Festival filmmaker who recently had a video up on bike blog about the chopperercabras bike battle.

This is a brigade of tall bikes, well Ross describes it best..."Here is some more freak bike action from this weekend.
Los Angelopes freak bike riders roll out to great Team Midnight Ridazz as they finish the Aids Life Cycle."

Los Angelopes 2 ALC from rossangeles on Vimeo.

The other video surfaced on one of bikesnobs sarcastic slanders of bike culture.

I think this is pretty rad...
