Anybody Like To Record Their Excursions?

I recently started recording my trips with my Canon mini DV camcorder mounted on the handlebars. I only ride on paved trails and the video quality is excellent. Anybody else like to do this?

Sure do! This is my YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/cyclingfun2. So far it's all cycling related material. Most of it is my rides, some leisurely, some hard rides up in the hills.

I started out using my Casio EX-S12 point-and-shoot digital camera mounted on the handlebars with a Pedco UltraClamp. Now I use a Kodak Playsport waterproof camcorder on the same mount. It's much quieter than the Casio over rough terrain. Regular digital cameras have too much rattling noise over bumpy roads.

Here's a nice leisurely ride from yesterday. It's the Earth Day ride that started at Practical Cycle in Old Sacramento, went along the American River Parkway bike trail, and ended at Discovery Park. It went back the same way.

Here's a sped-up Benny Hill-themed version of the same ride:
EDIT: Deleted music video from YouTube to prevent any copyright strikes. 3 strikes and you're out according to YouTube. I have a clean record and would like to keep it that way.

Thanks Practical Cycle hosts these types of easy rides several times a year, so I'll probably be recording more video

Here's another one from yesterday's ride. Practical Cycle rents a Worksman Team Dual Trike side-by-side semi recumbent tandem with an electric assist front hub motor, so sometimes I ride it with a disabled passenger who uses a wheelchair full time and is unable to pedal. We took the American River Parkway bike trail from Old Sacramento almost to the CSUS campus before the battery started to die. This was in spite of me not overusing the motor. I only ran it full speed on two short flat stretches. The rest of the time I used it to assist at times. The return trip was almost 100% leg power, including up hills.

Here's the raw version:

Here's a version with music sped up 8x. I had to put music on it because Windows Movie Maker 2011 mutes the audio when you speed up the video. This version shows the entire ride out to the turnaround point and some of the return trip.
EDIT: Deleted music video from YouTube to prevent any copyright strikes. 3 strikes and you're out according to YouTube. I have a clean record and would like to keep it that way.

Here's one from a fun cruise around Old Sacramento during the Jazz Jubilee. There's plenty of interesting sights during this event, so I never miss it

Sorry it took me so long to get back to this thread. I got sidetracked by posting all the grueling hill-climbing videos in other forums.

Sacramento, CA. It's the American River Parkway bike trail.

Yup, all the videos I've posted in this thread were recorded with a hand-held Casio EX-S12 digital camera. I didn't use my handlebar mount because I wanted to aim the camera at things that weren't directly in front of me.

Here's a couple more fun rides that I went on since the last time I posted here. Same hand-held Casio camera was used to record both of these.
