Video of our road riding in the Southern California mountains

Hi All,

The following video was taken (and edited) by Steve Meichtry on the ride we did last Saturday. Steve is for sure 50+ as are most of the riders you see in this video, so I thought it would be okay to share it here.

The ride was organized by Karen (Karen Climbfest #2 ) and you can see her many times in the video, replendent in pink (bike, kit, etc.). I'm in one scene only (look for the OCRR jersey) but it was a wonderful ride on a beautiful day in the mountains.

Here is my Strava from the ride: Bike Ride Profile | Encanto to Crystal Lake to East Fork to Mt. Baldy Village to Ski Lifts and back to Encanto near Duarte | Times and Records | Strava Since that might give you a better idea of what's involved in one of these rides. Anyway, check out the scenery and the happy bike riders!

Nice video, Rick! That looks a lot like Del Dios Highway going up past Lake Hodges, which is one of my favorite local rides.

Very nice work. It looks like an incredible place to ride. I especially liked seeing cars give wide berth as they passed. Thanks for sharing this.

Very true NOS88,

We are very fortunate to have so many good mountain roads to cycle on here in Southern California. There are generally very few cars on these roads and they do give us plenty of room. Sometimes, the motorcycles . . . not so much, but overall very good road sharing on these roads.

Awesome! I won't often sit through a 12 minute ride video, but that one had me from start to finish. Magnificent scenery, and marvelous camera work! I'd like to see the camera rig, or is he just that good at panning while riding?

Honestly Dan, I think Steve's camera work was all hand held . . . at least as far as I know. I'll ask him next time I see him. We really like cycling in those areas and I'm glad Steve's camera/editing work allowed me to share those roads with other 50+ cyclists.

Good stuff. The author did a pretty good job keeping the camera steady. I'm thinking a GoPro or something similar. Whatever, it was good.

Yes capejohn, I'm pretty sure it was a GoPro plus Steve has had a lot of experience with it and seems to know what he's doing!
