20 Fast City Miles Before Work (VIDEO)

For those of you who have been missing my videos since I started my new job outside of The Grid, I posted a little something in the Roadie forum that you might like.

With the new job I now have time to ride before and/or after work. This vid covers lots of the old commuting routes, only before rush hour and over newly paved roads, some with BIKE PATHS! New Orleans has finally clawed it's way into the current century a tad.

HERE is the link to the Roadie Thread.

Yeah, still here. My current 1.8 mile commute through the park does not make for good video footage tho.

Thanks for the kind words.

gotta love the way the roadies were more preoccupied with his wardrobe than his riding.

Isn't that great!? An unexpected but delightful bonus from posting that on the Roadie board.

My next project is to run the cam on our local bike path on a nice Saturday morning when hundreds of poseurs dressed like racers/time trialists clog up 40 miles of smooth tarmac. On a calm day, riding with my bud in his cutoff jean shorts and an old sweatshirt, we can maintain 23-25 mph for all of that ride. Needless to say, we blow by lots and lots of cyclists dressed "properly".

You rode past my old place on fontainebleau. Cool to see it again.

The laughable thing is that you posted this and the trunk punch video and are proud of them. Whatever little story you have made up in your mind to justify your actions is wrong. You are an @$$.

It's funny, when out on my weekend rides, I find myself following my commuting routes for the most part. New one, old ones, variants thereof.

You know, it's funny. Although I agree that the type of riding depicted is by all accounts despicable, I'm oddly comfortable with the poster knowing this and not giving a damn. Maybe it's years of riding motorcycles as well, but I guess I'm used to guilt by association.

Yeah, he did a lot of things that I would never do and consequently would keep me from ever riding with him, but hey, he's having fun anyhow. Good for him, I guess. We all only live once. Some shorter than others.
