I participate in the annual big wheel race at easter In San Francisco. We bomb a mad curved hill in potrero. It used to be on Lombard Street before the suits banned it. This takes it to entire different level though. This is awesome!

If you find yourself participating or spectating at one of these events you're living a very sad existence. Maybe the local Walmart was closed for renovations?

Harmless indeed! This is...one of the most wholesome things that EXISTS on Youtube, I think.

They even had proper helmets and long pants on!

I saw no evidence of drunk...driving...

Looks to me like a good way to kill an afternoon and wring a little more fun out of outgrown toys.

That's funny as hell! Those jeeps are surprisingly sturdy. Well, one or two of them were. I especially liked the dude with the go pro about halfway through. I hope he got some good video! I'll never look at one of those little toys the same, lol

I made the mistake of letting the 11 year old watch this video. Crap. Now I think I have given him ideas. Bad ideas.

That was hilarious. I bet anyone of those folks would help you pull your jeep out of the mud or give you a beer if you needed one. Good healthy fun.

You really thought you could get away with saying anything negative about Barbie Jeep Racing?

Trying to think of anything comparable around here, but man, that's tough to beat as a cultural event. Near my hometown, they hold the Toilet Bowl on New Years' Day, complete with a TB Queen, parade, and of course a football game in the snow. If nothing else, it breaks up the winter.

some classic wipe outs there,

question is, were they bought for the event, or robbed from the back yard

Really? "just being honest"? Not attempting to put someone down? Let's look at what you said...

You don't think saying people live "a very sad existence" is a putdown? How is that not a put down?

"Just being honest" is the biggest excuse I see people using for saying mean things. Extreme example: If someone was a racist and spewed a bunch of that garbage, would it make it all ok if they said, "I'm just being honest"? What they really mean is "I'm just saying what's on my mind". But that doesn't sound as good because the word "honest" makes us all feel better about it.

Oh... and yep... I'm a hillbilly. Grew-up in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains. And I'd be having a great time participating or spectating at that event.... living my very sad existance.

EDIT: Oh... and don't feel too bad about the negative karma. I've stepped in a pile myself a time or two. There are no lasting effects
