yes, always includes falls in videos! was disappointed the other night, when I went down, that the camera was off. another smooth video w/ good music! watched it before bed last night. very smoothing. thank you for sharing. noticed how clean your driveway & walkway were! how much did the fall hurt on the sore ribs?

Thanks. I was fortunate enough to not injure again the ribs that are now mostly healed but my right side ribs took a hard hit. It's not as bad as the previous injury because it's higher up on my ribcage to where it doesn't restrict my mobility or breathing as much. I was disappointed for not seeing the branch I came in contact with. I posted my video to a Facebook forum and another rider commented that he'd fallen in the same place and bent his disc brake rotor. I tried to move the branch but it was too buried in snow and too big to budge. It's a lightly used section of trail so it will likely just remain there to snag other unsuspecting riders.

From 6 Months Ago

I'm still confined to my indoor trainer as I wait on a rib injury to heal. I'm hoping to be back out on the trails in the coming week. Another fall on ribs not fully healed will set me back more than I care to think about so I'm being cautious. Here's a video from 6 months ago while riding the trails along the Minnesota River in the shadow of the MSP airport.

sounds like you are a good patient patient!

Patient comes from the Latin “patiens,” from “patior,” to suffer or bear. The patient, in this language, is truly passive—bearing whatever suffering is necessary and tolerating patiently the interventions of the outside expert.

Characteristics of a good patient include
obedience, patience, politeness, listening, enthusiasm for treatment, intelligence, physical cleanliness, honesty, gratitude and lifestyle adaptations (taking pills correctly and coming to the clinic when told)

I know that going out too soon and not having my normal mobility increases my risk for another crash and possibly setting back my recovery. I just want this done with!

recently got an 8 myself. boy this cam sure makes big files. what settings do you use? I was thinking 1080 24fps SuperView with HyperSmooth on Boost. I've been experimenting on foot right now, cuz I'm off the bike w/ a sore shoulder for a few weeks. how are your injuries healing?

I'm using 1080 at 30 fps but 24 should be fine. Yes, Superview with HyperSmooth. I'm not sure about Boost. What is that? Is that related to color processing? I typically record in flat and enhance the color through iMovie during the editing. I was lifting furniture 8 days ago and aggravated my rib injury again. It's getting super old. I could ride and I would likely be fine but one fall and I could set myself back. I would rather wait. Golf season is just around the corner and I want to be sure I'm healthy for that! Thanks!

Here's a video from 6 months ago this week. I'll be doing this again in the next 4 to 6 weeks!

Ah, interesting. Yes, 1080 seems to work well. I delete all of my video files after processing each video. I do save a copy of the file I upload to YouTube. They're usually a little less than a GB.

A Return

I've been restricting my riding to my indoor trainer the past 7 weeks after a crash that resulted in a rib injury sidelined me. It was nice to make it out to the river trails yesterday and to feel the sun on my face again. I needed that.

No, I never have but I've heard stories of others who weren't so fortunate.

Thanks! Yes, I have a small tripod that I keep in my top-tube bag for such a scene. The ribs are back to normal.

Considering how I had 3 separate rib injuries in 8 months, I felt I should have a bone density scan done to make sure there wasn't a more concerning issue at play. Sadly, I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. It was such a shock to me but I suppose it shouldn't have been. Over the past few decades I've had to rely on high doses of the steroid prednisone to get me through phases of cluster headaches; an excruciating headache that makes migraine headaches pale in comparison. Prednisone cuts both ways in that it can be very helpful but also very harmful to one's body. It's especially hard on bones. I'm in the middle of the perfect storm for an osteoporosis diagnosis in that I have Low-T as well and the fact that I bike a fair amount. Cyclists are known for poor bone density because this thing we do is non weight-bearing. I was certain my doctor was going to recommend that I give up outdoor cycling and had prepared myself for such a request. But he didn't. He said that because of my slender build, he's not nearly as concerned about my condition as he would be for someone who has a heavier build. I was so relieved to hear this but I do realize that I need to exercise more caution when I'm riding, especially when I'm mountain biking—in other words, I need to stop crashing! I'm just glad to be out riding again and capturing some video along the way. 🥂

ah interesting. I'm familiar w/ prednisone from our years of fertility treatments. Wifey was later diagnosed w/ osteoporosis & treated with I-forget-what for several years & finally her bone density improved enough to get off whatever-it-was. bad headaches are no fun, sounds like you are in good hands. always enjoyable to watch your vids!

oh & no crashing ... hehe yeah that would help!

Let's Ride Bikes! In the Wind!

Some of us are dragging out our winter gear to get some gravel miles in here in the Minneapolis area as spring continues to be mostly a no-show. These are a few snippets from yesterday afternoon's ride with some of the guys from Cannon Valley Velo Club in Northfield, MN. A good time and a good workout!
