Perpetual Cycling Video Thread

I love watching cycling videos found on YouTube or just about anywhere else. I also think that quite a few of you guys like watching them too. This thread will be a list of cycling videos that you've found or made and would like to share them with everyone.

Here are some recent cycling videos I've found on YouTube:

Come Ride With Me: 2010 Six Gap Century - This guy also reviews a lot of beers in case you're interested in that as well. He has a series in this style of century rides he has rode in.

Worst Day of the Year Ride 2011 - This guy actually lives near me. I love his videos. No music, just the open road or golf cart path.

And the best of all, Mr. Beanz YouTube channel. This guy really knows how to have fun!

Please post away.

Thank you for those links

This is my channel. So far, it is all cycling-related videos, at least until something cool happens like seeing a bobcat or mountain lion on the road in front of me

Hahaha, thanks Crazy! Sometimes I try to go through to pick out my favorites for a thread but then I end up watching them all.

He even let you hear a tiny bit of the ride audio from the climb. Cool video

I like watching this type of scene. 1) reminds me to check my tires before a fast descent. 2) cool move to avoid crashing 3) heck, I dunno, make something up.

Cools scene, hate to see Joseba Beloki get hurt, and other than the advertising he throws in at the end.

OUCH! Armstrong's reflexes FTW

This kind of situation is why I check my tires before every ride. Scary

I actually did that fishtail move on the way down a switchback hill (Carbon Canyon in Chino). I was lucky that the pedal whacked me on the back of my ankle, it brought back upright but hurt like a muthuh! Last time I ever did any kind of a hill ride with a somewhat worn tire.
