Doing research for this page was a lot of fun. Looking for imagery of people tumbling downhill led me to the Cheese Rolling Race in Gloucester. I'm not sure how many videos I watched of people throwing themselves down a steep hill in order to win a wheel of cheese (and no doubt some sort of hill-cred), but it was a lot.
For your viewing pleasure:
Those are some brave souls. I would take one step and instantly tear all the ligaments in my body.
We have not one, but TWO Big Wheel Races here in SF, which are just as amusing/ridiculous. Although they take place on hard pavement rather than soft grass, they seem a lot safer.
Have a great rest of the week. See you Friday!
