Obstacle course ramp placed on bike path makes cycling to work a bit more fun

Nifty concept to celebrate Bike-to-Work week in Vancouver

I’ll tell you what — if this here little obstacle was placed on my bike path to work, I’d be late going in every day.

The ramp is called the “Whoopdeedoo” and it’s meant to make biking into work a bit more fun. A series of these little bumps in the path are located all throughout Vancouver for the purpose of celebrating the city’s annual “Bike-to-Work” week campaign.

Designer Greg Papove came up with the design for the ramp. It’s low enough so that all ages / biking skill levels can use it, and features simple to follow, bright lines and border flags to ensure riders don’t hurt or otherwise kill themselves going over the edge.

While it might not seem like much, the ramp has proven surprisingly popular. Get the experience of going over it in the video below.

What’s funny is that, as the rider goes over it, you can’t help but think to yourself “Whoop . . . dee . . .doo!”
