BackFLip on the Bicycle

One of the great things about the wife sharing and enjoying your hobby with you.
She understands the needs involved. Lastnight Gina suggested that I pick up another Flip just incase something happens to the Flip I currently use.....Who am I to argue!

Another poster "LawnChair" suggested that since it is a back up FLip, I call it the "BackFLip"!...some pretty creative people here!

It's pouring here,..........again!

S'posed to rain for a while today then clear up but it's been all day! Usually nice her but this year has been pretty wet compared to what we usually have. Still better than snow, although I wouldn't mind a few snow videos.

This was always my favourite road for riding - this is at the top of a decent climb ( maybe 400 meters in about 3kms - the TCH info says 12% )

Nope, smae exact model, "ultra"....no the "Ultra HD" which is the black finish.

Gypz has the HD model. He used it on a ride and posted the video. I can't see the difference!

The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys. Enjoy that FLIP, never heard of it til now. I do enjoy your videos, the music choices are good as well.

Even Flow is a bit of a weird choice, it's about a homeless man...
