Mexican Cyclists Turn Damaged Streets Into a Mini Golf Course

To raise awareness of poor road conditions in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, a group of cyclists formed a mini golf game using the excessive amount of potholes on the streets. Word spread throughout the community and it's since turned into an annual event. Their efforts have resulted in increased road repairs, and now other cities are hosting their own tournaments.
