Do you have 3 minutes? (Video)

I shot a time-lapse video of my commute into work this morning. Looking at the original, lots of detail but when I uploaded to YouTube, it's harder to see. Anyways, if you have time or the interest to watch, here it is:

Commute Video High Quality - If this doesn't work, try the YouTube link below.

Was shot with my new camera, Canon SD870I mounted on my handle bars.

I'm surprised that you were able to discern location from that jerky video! I'd be happy to join you guys for a night ride, but it's hard getting away from the family at night. One day, if I'm on my good behavior, I might be able to get permission to join you guys.

No prob..I understand..yes I was able to catch some landmarks...going down Canada and Verdugo and a few other places...mainly cause I live in and ride in these areas all the time!

Fun to watch. It gives the impression that you blow through most of the stop signs...not sure if it's just the sped up video.

I wouldn't say I blow through the stop signs... I slow and if there are no cars, I proceed without making a full stop. However, I do always stop at red lights.

13 miles, -1600 ft elevation loss, about 40 minutes from start to finish. Return trip takes me less than 70 minutes.
