Some road video

My son and I took in a lap of our 9 mile neighborhood loop today before supper. I mounted the camera on my bike and shot some video. It comes out a lot smoother on the road than the offroad video I shot last week.

Here is one clip:

When the rest are uploaded, they will be here:

Enjoy!

Cool! I enjoyed the ride. I wish I had that type of "neighborhood loop" to ride around here..... no cars!!

How did you mount the camera to the bike?

Nice stuff!!! Like Yen said...where's all the cars. The only one I could
see was parked.

Great loop, thanks for sharing.

Happy Trails

Thanks BD.

What a great place to ride. Very light traffic, those GA pines, red clay and I only saw one dog

With this damn dial-up I'm stuck with...videos are off limits. Of course I could start loading before bedtime, then check how it's going after breakfast.

I'm tired just looking at this, maybe if I watch your videos I'll just stay home and skip the next ride.

Good job - on the Tour de GA.

I'm on a waiting list for high speed internet from AT&T. As a retiree, I get a nice discount.
We have a cable company which offers broadband at outrageous prices. Their service is terrible, we can barely watch TV sometimes, so I'm not going to throw any more money at a competitor who cannot even deliver a reliable TV signal .

Thanks, I'm feeling great. I'm enjoying following the doctor's orders to gain weight.
The real battle begins Monday. More to come in a different thread.

I added some more clips from our ride Saturday morning. We had a nice, casual 24 mile ride. Much of the asphalt was new. A very smooth ride on flat to gently rolling roads.
