Dancing Through Paris on a BMX Bike

It's hard to imagine anything looking right about a 40-year-old man riding a BMX bike in the city, but Alain Massabova looks downright graceful as he wheels around Paris while wearing jeans, a t-shirt, and various pairs of Nike Airs. To be fair, it looks less like he's riding his BMX, and more like he's dancing with it.

Massabova is the editor and publisher of Art BMX Magazine, and has been riding for 27 years. In J.C. Pieri's video, 40 Years in Paris, he takes the viewer on a tour of the city by bike.
