It's like the Tour de France with a sense of humor. Next time you see a bunch of cyclists drifting past you in inflatable white jackets, remember this article. They're taking part in an Aeolian Ride. A what? 'Aeolian' means being caused by wind, and 'Ride' means, well, ride.

Organized by Jessica Findley, Aeolian Rides are whimsical adventures that promote a love of bikes and silliness – and are made up of 52 riders in wind-inflated white nylon suits. They've been taking place for four years now , and so far, they've hit New York, San Francisco, Cape Town, LA, Melbourne and Halifax.

Jessica is considering locations for future rides, so get in touch if you'd like one in  your 'hood. And watch out for strange moving white sculptures floating down a street near you. RM
