Maybe I just need more practice on that one.
    Agreed. My folding bike is the only one I can't comfortably ride no-handed on.

    Here was my first (see earlier thread photo hands free on snow, apparently disallowed - #thestupidrules) attempt at a traditional "danger panda" photo. More like #warypanda.

    You can't tell by the pic, but I am hands free. My right foot is on the down tube; my left foot is still on the pedal. I did look at the camera, but the shutter delay caught me looking away (could really use one of those bursting cameras)

    Good learning process, though. You need a downhill grade so that when you stop pedaling your bike maintains its speed. I liked the sections on the W&OD (eastbound) between Shreve & Citizen's Bridge and Great Falls to Little Falls. Nice & straight with a little downgrade. The tricky part would be to go when it's not busy; you want the trail to yourself.
    I was able to go hands free, one foot on the top tube and one on the down tube later on this same ride, but I didn't have my camera in my hand. Getting that second foot up on the top tube is going to be the scariest part.

    Good work, gents. Unfortunately, only Ricky got points so far. I explained why, along with scorecards

    0 points. Even though you had the foot on the top tube, you weren't looking up at the camera (which invalidated the pic). If you were, that would've been 3 points right there!

    Steve, yes, I have found that I have to be going faster - and usually downhill - to do the feet on the top tube thing. I'm sure you can do it since you can ride a unicycle (I can't, I've tried).

    I knew this photo wasn't worth anything; it was just a warm up (also dq-ed for no helmet). No hands looking up at the camera is easy-peasy; it's the extra points that are tougher.

    I have vaguely heard of this "daylight" of which some people ride in:

    How about this #dangerpanda ? No hands, watching for a #fingermanfive picture by @Bilsko?
