Ever heard of the Siberian Divers' Club? Well they're a bunch of crazy Russian cats who recently spent a weekend trying to ski and ride bikes underwater
And guess what? It's not that easy, as the footage below proves.
, just north of the Mongolian border in Russia, is 5,500 feet deep. The intrepid aqua-cyclists plumbed for a shallower portion to try out their experiment, but they still discovered that it's fantastically difficult to keep the wheels on the bottom of the lake. Only a couple of the participants actually managed to "cycle."
The club has decided that this will be the first in a yearly tradition of trying to do odd things underwater. Next year, golf, maybe?
