David Cerny Bike Tour Prague
David Cerny is a artist born in Prague with interesting, controversial, and always eye catching sculptures all over the city. I rode upon some of them by chance, when I looked up information about them online I found that they were all by the same artist. So I decided to create a bike adventure touring around the city to find his sculptures. This is a great way to get to know the city and see awesome public art. Prague is not easy to navigate but if you're good and remember to look up this is possible to do in a day. I gave myself more time, this was a cruising tour for me, plus you'll probably see most of his sculptures by coincdence anyway.
Too bad for me. I did not read the fine print on the requirements for transporting my bike on the bus, you have to put it in a box, and so I was not allowed to bring it with. I would have really enjoyed being part of enormous bike community of Vienna. I had to tie my bike up at the Florenc bus station in Prague and hope that it would be there in five days when I got back. The good news is buses run out of there twentyfour- seven so it was nice to know there would always be foot traffic around my bike as protection.
Once I got to the Museum Gugging, I relaxed with some beautiful art work. A lot of artists are inspired by public transportation. Hear are a few from the Gugging. This museum exhibits Art Brut. Some of these people ave some training but most of them are psychiatric patients living in hospitals creating art there or at the Gugging itself.
I took a million pictures at this place
Beautiful place, Vienna waits for you and I shall return.
Ah Shit it's the Cops
Well I was trying to cheer myself up after watching the worst movie I have seen in a long time, by joyriding through the streets of Prague at about 1 a.m. (Movie tickets are about six dollars)
When all the sudden, siren, I know it's for me because the streets are empty.
I was not sure how this was going to go down,
They asked for my passport or I.D. Lucky they didn't demand a passport
they said I had to pay two thousand karun for my offences
then I started getting uncomfortable they wanted straight up cash on the spot what if I didn't have that plus there's a definite shady factor I mean how do you give a traveler a ticket but still
They took my I.D. made me wait forever like all cops do and then came back with a ticket saying I only had to pay
500 karun twenty dollars.
But two things do not run red lights and put lights on your bike they made me ride home on the sidewalk since I had no lights I was lucky I paid cash and said "the sidewalk?" and they said yep
So I went on my way Moral of the story Los Angeles bike rules apply lights are obviously a good idea anyway
I packed mine but I forgot them
Praha Riding Part 1
Proceed with caution. Always be a defensive rider.
As you have cars doing ridiculous car things. This one here sped up to try and beat the metro. I took the above picture alone about five seconds prior to this. I notice cars like to speed and especially bully people crossing the street they will do their left turn and stop inches from people who have the green walk symbol. I do cross the street with pedestrians rather than traffic because once the cars get their green light what they do from there is unpredictable.
