Sped up video of a local bike ride in Northern Cali (Davis)

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Sped up video of a local bike ride in Northern Cali (Davis)

Okay, so it's not a "bikecam" video - that would take too many batteries, and SD cards and be a pain. So I drove the route in my jeep and filmed it that way. It's beautiful up the Davis area.

This ride starts in Winters (about 10 miles from Davis), winds through the country and features a 850ft climb right in the midpoint of the ride.

About 25 mile loop. Here is the google map link:

Heh, Cantelow looks pretty flat in the video. BTW, that's almost the same course as the Winters Road Race.

Yeh, the video doesn't really do it justice. It was my first hill climb attempt. Did pretty well. Only stopped a couple times. Though, I did learn the brakes on my bike aren't really all that great

I got the route off the davis wiki bike routes page. Maybe one day I'll do Mix
