    Blistering Hot Pugsley Ride at the Beach (VIDEO)

    105F Heat Index. 'Nuff said.

    As for editing I usually go very light to nil on special effects, animations, etc when editing. I like the content to drive the video. Today I had the challenge of the sun (celestial lemon) in my face most of the morning which never really helps any camera capture the day. Instead of crying about it I got creative with the sun in combination with some animation effects that worked out surprisingly well. The "lemonade" was delicious.

    Since my editing resembles and LSD trip (I really wouldn't know) I chose some Pink Floyd as the background noise. So put in your ear buds and ratchet up the volume to 1973 levels.

    Enjoy!

    MODS: Wasn't sure where to put this vid. Not quite Touring, not quite Family and Rec IMO. Gadgets and Electronics? Leave it here or move it where you think it will do the most good. Thanks.

    The tide was in, so packed sand was not available. The loose sand = heat stroke. That's a winter sport!

    Happy to dig up some "memories" for you!

    He really overreacted. I think he was in a deep trance when my friend, bell ringing, went past. Then he looked up and saw my camera hanging out to the right on the boom and freaked. There was no need for the dance really. But I thought it funny enough to include it.

    It is actually a battery charger. It charges an internal battery and/or his iPhone as he rides. We tend to do some long rides and he runs a GPS tracking program that eats his batteries. I don't even take an iPhone along (redundant to his) but carry one or two external batteries for the video camera. In a pinch he can charge his phone 2 or 3 times from one of my spares. I must admit, the turbine is a cool idea except I wish it had one more function.....a FAN. Use the internal battery to push the blades and cool us off!

    We drove a little over an hour to get there. On the bikes for about 7:30 AM. It starts getting noticeably warmer by 9AM. By 11AM you better be getting close to the car. 11AM to 4PM would be a real survival mission.

    If you noticed I have long sleeves and full fingered gloves. Sunscreen on all the rest. Full visor on the helmet. I also have a Tilley sun hat in my panniers if it gets real stupid. The little blue cooler on my front rack had three water bottles frozen solid with a chemical freeze pack from Heavenly Ham (they ship hams all over and their cold packs are hands-down the best on earth). The cooler is made by Seattle Sports and has incredible R-value. My two frame bottles have full neoprene covers and keep ice and water cold/cool for two hours. When one bottle is finished I start defrosting one from the cooler that will still be SOLID ICE after five hours. I can have ice water available for 8 hours WITH ice cubes! I drink a little more than one bottle an hour. I had extra for my bud. The area we biked was ground zero for Hurricane Katrina. Like an atomic bomb for nearly one mile inland in 2005. Still no certainty getting dependable water supply (early AM before the few new restaurants open for lunch) other than homeowner's water hoses. Good way to get a *** pointed at me in Mississippi.
