funny things caught on your bike camera

I have a fly 6 on the back of my fat bike, and in order to get a little more out of my commute for an upcoming ride I have been riding the fat bike every day for the last week on my commute across town.

I was watching a little video this morning and realized that two lovely young ladies who were out jogging caught up to me at a stop light. Not realizing they were on camera these two ladies blew some really professional grade snot rockets out their nose.

Funniest thing I've seen from the camera so far, I might start watching some more of these. I have not tried to do any editing yet but I might have to learn so I can share some of these.

Video or it didn't happen?

Personally I haven't considered a camera mostly because it's not permitted at my work and fiddling with it before or after the front gate seems like it would look suspicious. I sometimes wish I'd had video of the wildlife or traffic.

If I needed a reason to video my whole life, there are more "missed moments" with my kid than on the bike.

I do this all the time when I stop in the bikebox in front of traffic at a red light.

I always wonder what they think!

Damn, man, you really move fast.
@jdswitters, it would be nicer if they flashed you, not realizing they were on camera. Or maybe not. Whatever.

Nice one! I've noticed if you cross paths with the cross country team, even the girls are horking 'em all over, I suppose once they're in a pack it's ok.

It looked like you were going to keep riding once you got indoors.
