Shirtless Cyclist Pedals Along Interstate 80 Like It's No Big Deal

Obviously, this guy is nowhere near as entertaining (or offensive) as San Francisco's naked acrobat, but the fact that it took three cop cars to stop him counts for something, right?

As we understand it, this dude took off his shirt, hopped on his bike and managed to pedal across several lanes of traffic on Interstate 80 to get to the center divide on the freeway. From there, he continued his illegal commute on the interstate.

The scene was bizarre enough to make it onto the CHP's Facebook page yesterday.

Here's how the cops described the incident:

Not something you see everyday... It took three CHP vehicles to safely stop traffic and get this bicyclist out of the center divider on I-80 near the MacArthur maze today. If you see something suspicious call 911 and be sure to give us a location , direction of travel and information on what you see! It may just save a life!

No word on where he was headed, but to be fair, it was perfect bike riding weather.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
