Four Videos For Thursday

We have received an abundance of videos lately that we think are worth sharing, but with only one content post per day, it seems like a bit of a waste to only put up one.  Enjoy:

On 5th Street NE and Broadway Minnesota’s first Bicycle Stop Light was installed.  This video is curtsey of YouTube user seanmurphyjefferson.

Remember way back when it wasn’t winter?  This video takes us on a ride around the Velodrome at the National Sports Center in Blaine.  Thanks to @zachgullickson and forced240 for the head’s up.  There is something mesmerizing about going ’round and ’round on the track.

Video of a lap during last Saturday’s Freewheel Fat Tire Crit.  Plucked this from Minnpost.

Just for fun.  We shot this video on Saturday.  He nailed the first, not so hot on the second.

    re: the first video.
    A couple technical questions:
    The pedestrian signal remained on “don’t walk” while the bike signal was green. I assume there is a separate push button to activate this signal. If both buttons are pushed simultaneously, are bikes and peds given concurrent greens?
    It looks like opposing motorized traffic also was also still red (can’t tell because you can’t see the lights…). Is the opposing approach actuated? in-pavement loops, video, or other? If there is an opposing vehicle, does opposing motorized traffic and the bike signal give concurrent greens?

    I think I will need to head over that direction and explore it for myself sometime soon.
