Today's ride

My ride today. Easier hills than usual. Tyring to get the kinks out of the holiday legs.

With that U2 soundtrack, it really makes me want to go ride.

Luckily I get to with my favorite partner (wife) for 3-4 hours today ;-)

Spoiled California people we are. I worry that it's too cold to ride. I don't deserve to watch your snow videos.

Cool! My wife is my favorite ride partner too, by far the prettiest!. You'd agree if you saw a pic of the other guys.

Thanks! I've always been active so Ca has been veddy veddy goot to me! If I were to move to the NW, I'd miss the sun.

I lived in SoCal for 22ish years; I miss the weather & beaches, but that's not enough to counteract the high cost of living, high taxes, and people shallower than the creases in their face after their latest botox treatment.

I used to think it was still a good place to visit, until I visited somewhere else with better weather and better beaches.

Great video Beanz,

How do you do the shots where you are riding through the camera? At about the 1 min mark the camera seems to be on the ground then you or someone rides into view.

Do you use some type of remote? Do you use any type of helmet mount or bar mount or are you strictly freehand?

Thanks! I use a little tripod for that type of shot, no remote. I set up shop, push record then ride away and back. I usually make sure there aint anybody around to avoid some wisenheimer taking off with the camera. The recorder holds 2 hours of video so I just edit the unwanted footage while making the final video to be posted.

It's a little more exercise doing this shot on a mtn climb or big hill. I set up, ride down then have to climb back up. Good workout though.

I do most everything by freehand while riding. I do have a handlebar mount but only use it on a fast mountain descent that includes switchbacks.







Video all freehand. Anytime you see riders behind me, Im riding with one hand up in the air so that I can catch those behind me in the video. It can get tiresome on some of the mountain climbs.


This is a video I used the handlebar mount. Funny, my parents rarely watch my videos. I showed this one to my Dad the other day, he said "you better not let your mom see this".

Thanks! FTR, I play as safe as I can. I ride GMR all the time (in the video). Some days I will remove rocks that I see in the opposite lane on the way up. I rarely push it downhill unless trying to catch a partner. Last Thurs I was riding with a partner that is much lighter and not as fast on the downhill. I gave him a headstart, past him, stopped took his pic then tried to catch him again. ON the lower slopes (in the video) it was covered with dirt and debris. I backed off so when I got to the botom, the dude asked why I didn't catch up. I told him I backed off cause I figured it was unsafe. 2 or 3 days later, some dude got killed on the same road, slipped went down and got ran over by a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction.

Beanz, thanks for the info. Your videos are great motivation. I work with dial up (still in the dark ages) so I start loading the video and then go on to do something else. Every few minutes I will check on the download process and usually play the video from the start up to that point. By the time the video loads I have watched it 4-5 time. Sure wish I had your area to ride in, we have nothing compared to So Cal here in Florida.

Keep em coming....

Thanks. Yup, I had dial up cause I was never much into computers. Then I got a new computer and started the videos leaving dial up behind. Much better and not much more as far as price. I waited so long cause I had an old slow computer. New computers are nice, not very expensive anymore but if times are tough like most people right now, yeah they are eventhough they aren't....ya know what I mean!.

do you use the stock flip software or what do you use for editing?

I love that hill at the 2: 25 mark, on the backside of Bonelli, we just call it mile hill...

I am actually using the lates movie maker program "windows movie maker 2011"...it's free!

I was using the Flip but converted to the wmm cause I have more comntrol over volume control, fade effects, titles etc.

Earlier vids were all FLip, now WMM.

Yeah, mile hill, it's a good hill!
