Biking NYC During Hurricane Irene

Ever wonder what it would be like to take a bike ride during a hurricane?

The people at did, so they said “to hell with it” and took a series of bike rides around New York during Hurricane Irene. Fortunately for us, they filmed them and cut things together in this kick-ass video.

It starts off like a typical rain storm, but it’s coming down so hard in the second half of the video you can hardly even decipher the raindrops.

You’ll also see the streets of The City That Never Sleeps virtually empty.
