Short video of my ride on monday

This past monday i went for a ride on the Cadillac Pathways (Cadillac, Michigan) and duct taped my wifes camera to my helmet. I think it turned out surprisingly well. Its only about a minute long, so you dont have to suffer too long.

I think it came out great. Nice and stable.

I take it you've ridden that trail before - there were at least a couple places where I would've had to stop and make sure my bars would fit through the gap!

yeah, i've ridden that particular part of the trail probably 4-5 times. Its a short little single track off of the main trail. Its short length makes it easy for me to remember the hazards.

Yeah, it was just a spur of the moment idea. For reference, this is the camera i taped to my helmet, not a video camera at all.

I don't need to Google this to know what it very likely contains. I imagine the horse kicks the other star's knee at the end?
