I challenged our graduating class to reach a certain goal in fundraising (beating the previous best class participation rate of 75%) with the promise that if they did it, I would ride a bike into a pool. Industrious students that they are, they reached 100%, and so it was time to pay the piper.
It took a while to work out the logistics. Hart House graciously agreed to let me do it if I didn’t use a full size bike, and if we took some precautions not to chip any of the historically important tile.
and here, as seen by the gopro clone on the handlebars. At least I verified that the housing is waterproof.
I wish that I had done a little better on the jump, but not enough to want to do it again!
Update: a video here, showing that I get less than a full pedal stroke in.
