As promised last month with my "Teaser" video here at Bike Forums, the latest Commuter Fred vs. Triathlete video is complete.
Why is this in the Commuting thread?
1. Commuting keeps me in shape for geek hunting. My Long Haul Trucker weighs in between 40-50 lbs on any given day and is set up exactly like my road bike. Without commuting, there is no geek hunting or this video.
2. I was biking "on my way" to work during the making of this video wearing work clothes - cargo shorts, long sleeve shirt, and a backpack. Like taking the long way to work on a lovely day.
3. Every hard-core commuter I know personally (and many here) love to "hate" triathletes. Previous entries in the Commuting forum have been popular and sprout spirited responses and lengthy threads.
OK...here it is: (9 minutes)
"A Triathlon was taking place in New Orleans on Sunday May 26, so I hit Lakeshore Drive the day before for a little Geek hunting before work. The Lakefront was totally infested with Iron-men and Iron-women shaking down their equipment before the race. Thanks to their competitive nature, I had no problem finding racers to "Play the Game" with me."
