A little while ago I was walking down the high street in a very affluent part of London. The traffic was at a stand still and there was an unusual spark in the air. The noise of car horns built up in layers and the general public were all starting to look in the same direction. Suddenly bursting through the static traffic erupted these young bike riders, many performing wheelies, some riding directly at vehicles and swerving away only at the very last moment. They passed through quickly leaving the people on that high street mostly appalled but I thought it was brilliant. The riders were skilful, brash and taking over. During these brief moments those kids had the undivided attention of a public that ordinarily wouldn’t even give them the time of day. No one likes to be ignored.
