21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Bike Riding in a Breadbasket

Some people prefer thrill seeking opportunities to nine to five jobs. At the circus, this enterprising gent rapidly rode a bicycle inside a contraption that looked like a breadbasket, which was at a tilt, possibly due to the very thin ropes that suspended it high up in the air. It’s hard enough to balance a two wheeler on solid ground, but up in the air at a slant? That’s dedication to one’s job and entertainment for the rest of us!
