Talking Saturday Hybrid Ride [video]

I got this idea off Joey-Bike of NOLA took it a little further to include it in my blog. I will place this video here since it's not an actual commute as I was first going to post it there. This is a leisure ride on a Saturday with my route plotted by GPS then embedded into a webpage, hope you enjoy

Nice bike path's you have, The soundtrack was a little tough on my ears personally but that is not my particular taste in music. I do like your web sight. I will look forward to more videos.

:-) can't win em all, thanks for the positive feedback though. I like all sorts of music predominately punk rock but don't be surprised to hear some classical, classic rock on a few videos as well.

Very cool video - and the beat of the music added another entire dimension to the video. Keep going!

Please, carry on, I mean you no disrespect. I love cycle vids. I look forward to your next piece. Don't change anything on my account. Just because that particular piece of music wasn't my tast doesn't mean I don't like the this type of music

That was epic - great job !! You are lucky to live in a city with all those bikepaths.
Your website is also very nicely done. That's a lot of work, but I tell you it's fun to see.
Let us know when you have more videos.

Yeah we have a bunch I will be documenting them in my rides, I will also be focusing on them as to showcase them by themselves, this ride was 2 diff paths basically and 2 hours of film edited down and sped up you raced through the first one at probably 80mph which took away from the beauty I think. However my videos seem to get better as I get more experience.

It is awesome, I have lived here my whole life and have not even rode all of them. I will tell you this though this place sucks for commuters I know because I am one of them. We hope to change all that over time.
