"until he runs over a pebbel"

What`s a pebbel? Is that some kind of rare desert animal?

Anyway, I really want to see how he stops the bike and gets off without eating sh*t.

I don`t see why he`s labeled a "hipster" That term is used pretty liberally on this site and I was wondering what people think it means?

Love the use of "when" rather than "if".

In the caption to this video on YouTube, he explains:

"Rolling down into Death Valley after about 16,500 miles on the road.

This is the safest way to go down a hill on a Pennyfarthing, as when you have the accident you go feet rather than face first onto the tarmac.

I completed the round the world journey in November 2008 after 2 1/2 years, 22,000 miles on the road, and having visited 25 countries.

Yeah, so he`s not (just) crazy and there`s a reason the vid`s not about him bashing his skull...

I have to agree with SunnyNphilly. Where`s the inevitable faceplant?

Let`s see the good part of the video.

Dangit! Those hats... I know there is a word... those safari helmets.. they have a cool name...

and he is not a hipster- a hipster would not be dedicated enough to do a multi-day ride through the desert. This man is awesome.

Has "hipster" become a word to use when you don`t know how to describe a person with real english? I don`t even know what it`s supposed to mean anymore.
