Video (50MB mpg) racing through Manhattan streets on a bicycle, from the first person perspective. Camera is mounted on helmet, it has an IMAX quality for producing a feeling like you are there on the bike.(via eyebeam)

I was a bike messenger in NYC in the '80s (and still have the scars!) so I'm looking forward to seeing this - if it ever finishes downloading!

I've been d/ling for 20 minutes already, on DSL, and am only at 35% complete...gah. But this is a good time for me to mention that I too used to have the most glamorous, exciting, prestigious, sought-after job in the world. Yes, that's right, like nicwolff, I used to be a nyc bike messenger. I did have great thighs, but that was the only perk. I'm sure that this video will bring back many nightmares for me. Can't wait to see it.

Let's see if that Coral cache thing actually works: video link.

yeah, it's a double...but the first time the video got fried (farked?) pretty early on so it's a useful double post, thanks!

Yep, I never got to see the video first time, so a worthy pea roast.

well timed, too, considering friday's critical mass.
