I won a contest with the city of Long Beach and since I didn't really need a new bike (at least not the type they were giving), I chose the option of merchandise of my choosing worth $300. I got a GoPro Hero HD and a SD card and it came to just over $300...no $ out of my pocket.
I signed up this past week for the free Traffic School 101 "lite" class that is given for FREE at CSULB 1x a month (every third Wed and third Sat). The classroom portion was Wednesday night. Yesterday was the road portion. I decided was a good opportunity to test out the GoPro. I rode my Trek FX 7.2 there instead of the road bike as I commute on the FX and didn't want to deal with the clipless pedals in drills that I was unfamiliar with). I was glad I made that choice as a few drills might have been issues. I know what to do to practice those drills on the road bike now so it is all good.
I thought I was recording the actual ON the ROAD portion of the class but forgot I set the camera to turn off automatically after 2 min if it wasn't being used to conserve battery. So when I hit the record button for that, it was off so got no video of the road portion of the class. Oh well, I only wanted that to share with my cycling club as others will be attending the class in the future.
Here is a video I created of the ride there. (I especially love the highway patrol motorcycle cop and what I did there)
