In Italy, and perhaps other countries, "spinning" is something you do in a gym on a bike with no wheels (I've always thought spinners ought to be linked up to the national grid in some way, as an alternative source of energy). In SA I was puzzled by references in the media to spinning being a menace to the public and a massive irritation to people who live in neighbourhoods where it's practised, which seemed a bit over the top. Then this link explained it... impressive, but a skill of limited application, one would think.
