The guides in Hawaii do this all the time.  Except they're talking to their tour group.  And pointing out stuff around them.

Not that crazy.  Look up Red Bull Rampage if you want to see how crazy people ride bikes down mountains.

It is stupid... his helmet is pointed int he wrong direction to get the benefit of the streamlining. He's probably adding a lot of resistance from his head being in the wrong direction.

I'ld be the guy cutting down the hill to cut all that distance down.  Can't cut it all since you do need to cross by bridge.

wet roads aren't actually that bad. If it's been raining a while, you have something like 90% of dry traction available.

That's nothing. I was watching Mickey's Clubhouse last evening with my son and Goofy was riding a modified bicicle upside down.

There is nothing wrong with it at all.  That is much bigger and faster version of what we did as kids, with jumps and wipeouts, but no back flip action.
