A video of mostly descending
Check it out:
We could only wish for terrain like that around here. Reminded me of our Tahoe ride.
Stoker and I have been playing with the camera stuff a couple of times. Taking tandem road ride footage here so far has been the equivalent to prepping for a nap.
While not a road ride, this was a portion of the ride for us on Sunday 7.12.

What camera were you using? Where did you shoot the video - looks like a great downhill: grade and top speed?

These are just the usual local roads ;)
We started the ride from our house.
We used the GoPro Hero wide angle, mounted on the handlebar.
The roads shown are:
- Skyline heading south from the top of Kings Mountain to the 35/84 junction (around Sky Londa).
- East 84 heading eastbound from Sky Londa to Woodside.
The first is less technical, not super steep.. ranges from 4%-9%.
The second is much more technical with a couple hairpins, etc... and ranges from 5%-11%

Very cool, Marco.
We're thinking of getting a camera to use at the stage race next month. Our friends want to see what a tandem crit looks like...so do I -- preferably before I do one. ;)

If it comes down to a bunch sprint, it will probably look like a stampede :D

Stoker just left the room and said "No way....." Nice video.
