    Is he riding through a cemetery? That's creepy.

    Funny video though.

    one of the main commuter routes in Portland goes through a cemetery.

    Yup. That is a HUGE cemetery that is perched on an entire hillside. It's actually a great little hill, and ride, and way to connect the West and East sides of town by avoiding lots of car traffic. Those hurses don't speed like the kids texting in their Civics.

    Sometime in the heat of summer, it's king of stinky.

    Kidding.

    that cemetery is so popular for riding they've actually had to "police" speeds and such--I visited it a few years ago (for actual cemetery reasons) and I can see why cyclists want to get off the road up there.

    That cemetary is also a great test ride area. River City Bikes is a short ride away on some of the trails that were included in the video. Very entertaining video. Actually some nice short climbs. I assume the helicopter shots came from the OHSU tram.
