Steep gravel road decent on Hybrid. ( short video )

I just took this little video clip today, tried yesterday at full speed but could not get the effect
of just how rough and steep it was. My daughter is going along beside me filming, I;m going
as slow as possible without skidding, sorry for the noise, I know it is hard to understand me.
This is whats so cool about Hybrids, you would not want to try this on a Road Bike..I will
attach the full speed version from yesterday, so you can see how well they can handle it.
Hope you enjoy. Richard

Not bad, I've just got back from a short ride and had a similar gravel descent, slightly rockier than that one, but not by much and probably a bit shallower. I was quite happy keeping myself to about 16mph down that one, not quite got the feel for the new bike yet, but I know I used to take the same path faster on old bikes, including a BMX in my younger days.

Not really sure how fast I was going once I hit the real down hill section, wanted to look
at the speedometer, but needed all my concentration on the bumps and rocks, did look
when I got the bottom and had slowed down some 12MPH. You got to love Hybrids !

You could not see it in the video, but I did a huge power slide at the end, that was what
she was referring to......
