Galen McCarty Turner's Bike Jump Through Neon August 2010 (11 Photos)

Galen McCarty Turner - a Tacoman, a bizarre artist, a bit of an eccentric, and a professor at Evergreen in the school's neon program - rode his bike over a death-defying multi-inch jump and through a wall of glowing neon tubing Saturday, Aug. 21 in the alley off Sixth and I Street, all for the benefit of Second Cycle, Hilltop's independent bike co-op. The atmosphere was that of a kegger. The cops arrived. And Turner successfully jumped through the wall of neon. Then everyone ran away.
