Office chair riding has long been one of my favorite forms of recycling! But once last year me and my bandmates at the time ended up being the the talk of the day on the national radio station K-LOVE after one of our neighbors called in during a caller segment asking “what is the craziest thing you saw this weekend?”
So yeah. One of my previous bands was on K-LOVE. Not for our Christian rock music though. For riding an office chair behind a car…
Unfortunately the segment wasn’t recorded, so I can’t show it to people… Highly disappointing.
Anyways, for several years whenever we have an office chair to be thrown out, we give it one last good use. With a helmet and kneepads, and a car to hold on to, a simple office chair can turn into a ton of fun!
You can only get up to about 15 miles per hour before the wheels start giving way or you begin to topple.
We have rode countless office chairs, and every time the wheels melt or break off at about the same distance, which if your wondering, is about 1 mile.
Apparently office chairs are designed for 1 mile of rolling and have a top speed around 15MPH. Now you know!
