Spin Cycle

A cool little amusement park ride film from my mate Greg, in Portland. Shocking that they are not wearing helmets, but it looks like fun all the same. :-)

Wow, Mr. Alicious, I'm honored. Don't you worry, I gave all of those scoundrals on the ride a talkin' to about the proper use of helmets.

I think I remember reading there's an entire carnival powered by pedal somewhere in the northwest. I wonder if this is one of their rides.

There's a couple of pedal-powered carnivals. The one in the video is cyclecide (http://www.cyclecide.com/).

Here's another video from a amusement ride from a different carnival. I took this video at Tour de Fat: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gregraisman/2489115409/in/set-72157605072045590/

That's a strange choice of music for an amusement ride, the sad "I Stopped Loving Her Today" by George Jones.
