Viral Outbreak: A Montage of People Crashing Big Wheels in San Francisco


It’s funny how things that are so simple when we’re children can become remarkably difficult as we get older. Not that it happens often, but when it does, the results can be hilarious.

Take riding a big wheel, for example. When we’re in our pre-kindergarten years, a big wheel is the safest, not to mention downright raddest, mode of transportation available. It’s low to the ground, has three wheels, two of which are damn near a foot wide, and requires absolutely no training to ride successfully. Fast forward to adulthood and things change dramatically. What used to be a relatively risk-free adventure now becomes a potentially concussion-causing death trip that should not be embarked upon without the aid of a helmet. Good times!
