- Who else on seeing a flight of stairs….
Yes, this is not unusual.
If we visit a stately home or a big garden I’m wondering how much fun it would be to bump down those steps, wooping away whilst all the pensioners look in disgust.
When watching telly, my mind wanders if steps appear. I’m a goddess cleaning the lot in one Danny Mac way.
Walking along the road looking around for steps to ride down at a later date. Who doesn’t?Posted 7 months agodonksMember
I can’t help but ride down the stairs to our local Tesco’s even though there’s a ramp adjacent. I do make sure there’s no one in the area first as they often bemoan such ideocy which is fair enough. Was in Edinburgh a few months back and there are some blinding stair sets as you run up to the royal mile so I’m taking the bike next time I go up there.Posted 7 months agomechanicaldopeSubscriber
My route home from work used to take me down the stairs in Victoria Square in Central Birmingham. Until one day, rush hour of course so plenty of people around, a pigeon appeared directly in front of my front wheel as I started the second flight and distracted me to such an extent that the remaining stairs were completed upside-down and off the bike. Que picking myself up and trying to pretend that I hadn’t hurt myself before going round the corner out of sight and crying. Bet it looked awesome though…Posted 7 months agoeasilyMember
I do the skateboard thing, I do the bike thing. I have a third version where I still plan the route that Lara Croft could take over rooftops.
There’s also a Sainsbury’s I know that has an outside flat escalator (is that called a ‘travelator’?). I occasionally enjoy a naughty ride down the up one which isn’t difficult, but is fun.Posted 7 months agomalv173Subscriber
Yes! Sam Pilgrim has inspired me to do it more. Fabio Wibmer scared the bejeesus out of me with that insane send. I am not up to gapping anything big, but I’ve found a nice set of about five lots of three and four steps that I can practice drops on. I also work on the 8th floor of a hospital and regularly fantasize about riding down the stairs there. In reality I reckon I’d get down one flight, s**t myself and walk the rest.Posted 7 months ago
I was actually invited by a bar owner in Greece to ride down the six flights of stairs (some inside, some out) from his third floor rooftop terrace down to ground level, while he filmed it on his phone.Posted 7 months ago
All good publicity, I suppose?
This was after he spotted me ragging down some steps onto the seafront.DezBSubscriber
used to bug me when I lived down that way.. are they rideable? what will it be like? will I fall in the creek? So the last day, before we moved up north (about 6 miles away) I went there on my trusty ETS-X and threw myself (and the bike) down them… BRBRBRBRBRBRBRRBRBRBR it went. It was rubbish. So I’m over stairs. Hucking them like the Wibmer fella will never be an option 🙂
Back when I first started mtbing – I used to whizz down these subway stairs on my rigid bike with v brakes and well, there’s a brick wall at the bottom, so you had to stop pretty sharpish. I think I was just showing off my lack of fear. I seem to be rather lacking in that lack of fear these days.Posted 7 months ago
