Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

They are all from a GoPro Hero3 Black Edition mounted from my handlebars. Cropped and adjusted in Adobe Lightroom. It's nice because I don't have to stop riding, the video is good too but it just takes so much time to edit and process so I just end up taking photos unless it's really epic.

Papik, your tunnel photo is great! Looks like an upside down wine bottle in your cage? (:

What memory card are you using in your GoPro?

I went with the samsung card they suggest on their website and can't get it to record anything longer than 10 minutes. Well, it'll record, but the files will be corrupted. Saw where others have suggested the 32gb transcend card, which arrives tomorrow. Hopefully, I have some better luck. Either that or my GoPro is junk.

What year did you go to Cayuga, Rousseau ? I graduated in 1982.

Post resurrect! Missed this at the time.

I went to Cayuga for just grade 9 in 1980-81, then moved to Hamilton for the rest of high school. So we walked the same halls for a year. I remember really enjoying the lunch-time intramural basketball games at Cayuga that year. Watching, I mean.

There are some awesome European photos in this thread. Keep'em coming. North America can't compare to Europe for gorgeous cycling vistas.

I'm curious. I see beautiful pictures and videos of people biking on these winding, small roads. But the group or biker are riding right in the middle of the road. How do you do this without worrying about getting hit or annoying drivers? Don't you anger drivers for having a pack of bikers riding right in the middle of the road? Sorry, I don't race or joined a biking group yet, I solo ride and I always ride as close to the edge of the road as possible.

Also I'm jealous of all these clean, beautiful roads. Here in MA, the trees, foliage etc are great, but the roads are a mess. I'm thinking if my wheels give out before a year, I'll buy a steel CX frame and switch over my components to deal with the terrible roads.

If you're on a road that is sparsely trafficked, you can confidently ride wherever you want until you hear a car coming or see headlights, then you can move onto the right shoulder. If you ride a route enough, you learn traffic patterns and know when it's safe to do so.

This was taken yesterday. Rode out from my LBS in Maryville, TN towards the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. 74 degrees and lots of wind! Luckily, I missed the rain.
