Video of my Bike to Work Day Ride

Spent part of a rainy weekend putting together a music video of the ride and some pitstops setup around town for bike to work. Hope its enjoyable!

Thanks for sharing.

Is the camera mounted on the front hub. That's an interesting angle. And tons of people on bikes. Is that just because it's bike-to-work day or is this a regular occurrence?

The guys on the Segués? What's up with that?

very cool. agree about the neat perspective.
i never was into biking as much as i am now when i lived in manassas - but then again that's a far cry from cycling through DC. But it looks like it'd be great.

Its a mount that replaces the end-cap on a QR and I agree the view is much more interesting than the usual cam locations! As for the number out there, its not unusual, we just don't normally congregate at pitstops before work. The segways, that's a tour company that has a shop in downtown. Its fun to ride alongside them or around them though.

I too am interested in the camera mounting location. Could you post a pic of where you had it mounted for the video? I had my gopro mounted on my fork but didn't get the perspective you achieved.

Thanks,
Shawn

Never mind! I saw the location in the video where your bike is in your office. I had mine mounted much higher than that. Very cool perspective!

Thanks everyone!

DC is a good city for riding and long stretches of country/agricultural areas are only about an hour out. For anyone interested the mounts can be found here: Bicycle Axle Camera Mount?. Someone mentioned there are Amazon alternatives too.
