For one last dive into the tall bike rabbit hole, a reader recommended this TEDx talk featuring Tall Bike Bobby, who toured from British Columbia to LA on a tall bike and shared his experience…

At the time of his TEDx Talk, Bobby Gadda (aka Tall Bike Bobby) was a bicycle activist and interactive performance artist who lived and worked in Los Angeles. For three months in 2012 he toured on a tall bike from Vancouver, BC all the way back to LA. Prior to the tour, Bobby co-founded CicLAvia, L.A.’s premiere car-free happening and worked at the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) as a program coordinator. In this TEDx Talk Bobby shared stories from his tour, how a tall bike made it different from other bike tours, and most importantly, how he gets off that thing…

“Any bike you can put a rack on and strap things to, you can go on a tour with.”
