Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin was arrested this morning.

The 56-year-old actor was handcuffed and taken away in a police car after he was caught riding his push bike the wrong way down Fifth Avenue in New York City, before going "ballistic" at the two arresting female officers.

The 30 Rock star was asked to provide identification following his arrest but after he failed to do so, he was taken into custody at 13th Precinct and given two summons, one for traffic violation and a second for disorderly conduct, according to the MailOnline. Alec was released from custody shortly afterwards and returned to his apartment in New York to be greeted by a flock of photographers and reporters.

The star had a disgruntled expression on his face as he made his way inside his home, before taking to his Twitter account to share his version of the event: "Officer Moreno arrested me and handcuffed me for going the wrong way on Fifth Ave."

YikeBIke introducing a modern Penny Farthing-style electric bike

We all remember the Penny Farthing bikes, right? They featured one oversized wheel and no pedals. Whether you saw it in an old British flick or in a book, we never thought that the style would make a comeback. We were wrong. YikeBike, a small company across the pond, is aiming resurrect the Penny Farthing bicycle.

Once you get past its odd look and the slight discomfort of the seat, you may actually fall in love with one of these. There's certainly some good to like about the YikeBike. It’s sleek, slim, and when folded up is about the size of a suitcase. Furthermore, for those that travel into the city by bus or train, you can use a TikeBike once you leave public transportation to get to your destination. All that said, there are a few things we definitely don't like about this thing. The YikeBike is an electric-powered bicycle which uses break regeneration to slow itself down when you let off the gas. So you can never completely come to a stop, unless you bail out. The price of the YikeBike may also leave you screaming, as it's priced at $3,800 for the carbon fiber model, and $2,000 for the aluminum version.

Translogic's Bradley Hasemeyer skimmed across the pond to try the YikeBike for himself, check out his test ride after the jump!

The Purple Pedals Project

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cameras, GPS, Transportation, Videos,

A few buds who like the color purple got together to launch a combination adventure/documentation project. The Purple Pedals Project equipped 20 yBikes with GPS and a camera that automatically snaps a shot once a minute. They then send them from all around the planet and are now attempting to document and share what they are doing via Yahoo mapping. Some of the bikes will be passed around between bloggers, Yahoo users and others, so if you would like to be one of them, or just want to see what they are up to, check out the PPP website.
