Red Scream Machine on Eighth Avenue

The streets of Hell's Kitchen are filling nightly with the screams of tourists. No, not the Sweeney Todd revival: Party Bike! The Post has uncovered the latest pet peeve to hit the nabe, a big red seven-person bike that seems to approximate whitewater rafting down Eighth Avenue. Experience the terror:

Encouraged by the bike 'captain,' the merry crew whoops. And hollers. And pedals - ineffectively, because the captain actually controls the steering and brakes. "The noise, it's like a knife going through my brain," says Sammy G., a pianist in his early 50s ... "The leader of the bikes knows that the crazier their riders get, the bigger chance of tips."· Vicious Cycle [NYPost, via NewYorkology]
