Richie-and-Tall-bike.jpgRichie Trimble's two-wheeler rose 14.5 feet and barely fit under the San Diego Freeway overpass on Venice Boulevard during Sunday's Ciclavia. “Everyone looks at you like your nuts and they’re right!,” he tells StreetsblogLA. “My Mom even said so!” On the video he shot with a GoPro camera and edited, it sounds like you can a lot of cheering for him. As of right now, the YouTube count is over 420,000 views. He calls it Stoopidtall.
