Opening last May, the 0.5-mile stretch of freshly paved road alongside the Bassin de l'Arsenal is part of the Réseau express vélo ("REVe"), an initiative to build fast-track bike lanes free of motorized vehicles. It's only the first section of the soon-to-be 28-mile network of bike highways that will cross the city by 2020.

But a perfect mix of competition, rapid technology development, and marketing strategy propelled what mountain bike pioneer Charlie Kelly calls a "goofy hobby" into global phenomenon and a new Olympic sport.
Though this cyclist is well aware that it's magpie swooping season in Straya, Australia, nothing will deter him from his biking plans. Not even, as quickly becomes the case, an unrelenting magpie appears, dead set on attacking its intruder. It's not the first time a magpie has ruined a moment, and it surely won't be the last.
