Norcal Winter brutality.

I had a chance to tag along with a group of riders yesterday and show them some of the hidden jewels at a local park.

WARNING: The following contains some climbing footage that might be offensive to some riders.

It also contains a bunch of slow speed techy stuff so if you're looking for high speed bombing just surf over to CNN and read the latest Anna Nicole corpse custody story instead.

Those trails would be murder on my cross-country ski equipment.

Enjoyed the video as well. Really enjoy your choice of music, too. I'd never heard that Ape Drape song.

This movie sucks, fantastic work! Great quality, lots of angles, and a solid soundtrack. I really enjoy your varied line selections, they keep it interesting.

That gnarly switchback sequence around minute 2 sucked really bad.

Nice video! The video flows very nicely even with the not so flowy riding.

Great techy trails too.

I don't know whether you did or not.

Video often flattens terrain a great deal, unless you're shooting from a very low angle (i.e. not helmetcam).

I have some video from the ride that wasn't used (climbing) where I'm fully red-ringered and barely maintaining traction/keeping the front wheel down and it looks like I'm riding on a flat, mellow trail.

Also, my helmetcam footage is typically much less bouncy/shaky/epileptic than many other vids so the roughness of the trail surface can be deceiving.

So I guess that yes, you missed some tech stuff.

Enough with the "my dog ate it".

I was just kidding anyway. I would love to have trails like that 'round here.

Good vid dude.

Well ****. I now know where I want to live if whistler ever falls to ****. Some of those lines just look like fun. Kind of eroded, but fun still. I doubt my climbing would up to snuff but I would work on it

As usual good work, you really should consider making a full production film or at the very least making a helmet cam segment on a full production film. I have not seen a helmet cam scene worht its beans in any movie yet.

cheers

Very nice. Very reminiscent of our terrain around here; just swap pine and fir for the scrub oaks. Looks like fun.

EDIT - - I kept bracing myself waiting to get my head whipped around catching the camera on a tree

Yes, I vaguely remember a pic wherein someone was riding the "boring" line rather than the fun line on the way back to the parking lot.

Here it is:

If you're calling the "fun line" the red smudge across the picture?

Boring...

There may not be time for the second tweak, but at least you can get one decent little boot.
