So it finally works. After installing another version of WMM, and after converting it to a .WMV file.

My commute back home from work.
One of the most rare public road designs out there.
Pima Bike BLVD. Salt River & Pima Indian Reservation on the right and Scottsdale on the left.
Pima Road on the right and Pima bike BLVD on the left which is separated by a wall.
You can never get out onto the main roads from the bike BLVD unless of course you are on a human scale. Our little utopia. We do share with autos, but very few if any ever show up.

Looks like a nice ride. I am jealous.

What gear did you use to record the journey?

And you can't go wrong with Pink Floyd.

That is an awesome route. Mine sucks so bad.

I'm glad you persisted with the editing. Computers can be so frustrating.

Yeah, Scottsdale is good for bike commuting. Wish I still lived there. I really love the greenbelt.
