    Default Pointless Prize: Stupid Silly Bike Tricks

    I'm offering a Pointless Prize for the best Stupid Silly Bike Trick. One of my favorite things about riding bikes is doing silly things. What counts as a Stupid Silly Bike Trick? Well, pretty much anything. Danger Pandas, Strava Art, and Wigglebillies all count. Ride to visit 8 donut shops in one ride? That counts. Riding up a staircase? That counts. Are you drevil? Pretty much everything you do on a bike counts.

    To participate, post a picture and a description of the Stupid Silly Bike Trick you did on this thread.

    I'll pick the four submissions that I like the most. Winners will receive a bottle of Stupid Silly Sour beer:

    Hmm, does riding children's tricycle count?

    YES! But you'll have trouble being as cute as Komorebi while doing it.

    I know what Strava art is, but what are Danger Pandas, Wigglebillies? Asking for a friend.

    In 2017 there was a Danger Panda Pointless Prize with an excellent description and lots of photos: http://bikearlingtonforum.com/showth...ointless-Prize

    (note - this particular danger panda was taken in tribute to Pete Beers, shortly after his tragic death; hence the pink attire)

    Wigglebillies were created by Mr. Wigglebilly himself. They prove that the silliest distance between two points is a wiggled line. The steps to perform a wigglebilly are as follows:
    1. Choose a destination.
    2. Get on your bike.
    3. Turn as many times as possible
    4. Arrive at your destination

    Here's an example of a wigglebilly stolen from the Strava of Mr. Wigglebilly himself:

    Couldn't get a photo because I was too busy doing the stupid trick. We ride very well loaded Tern GSDs at work. A partner had his battery die. In order to get back to the office in a timely manner, and to help his fading legs, I pushed him from the White House up 15th St and the Ontario Rd hill to the WABA office with a broom stick. Made a SURPRISING difference to use my legs and e-assist when pushing him.
