Your Riding Videos Go Here
 
We've got a thread for photos so how about one for videos? I have to believe that there are others besides Weisen and myself who are stitching together videos from our rides.

I'm curious to see what sort of roads you're riding on and the traffic you're contending with. Please share.

I use a GoPro Hero 2 that I picked up a few years ago. I've tried every mount imaginable from helmet to chest to bar and have settled on a K-Edge bar mount. It works best on my road bike.

I typically keep my camera rolling for the entire ride and process my videos with iMovie. I'll make mental notes along the way of scenes that I think may work well in the final cut. It's all about the editing in the end.

Background music is a nice thing in my opinion and I get most of mine through a couple of sites that allow you to use their music without fear of copyright infringement. All they ask is that you give them credit in the information area of the video. Here are a couple of sites...here and here.

My most recent video is from a ride this past Wednesday. There was a strong south wind and I knew my one and only Strava KOM was in jeopardy of being captured by someone else. I went out and gave it all I had while shaving 2 seconds off my previous best. It held up to a challenge later in the day from a group of 5 so I was pleased.

Here's the video.

I hope others will contribute to this thread and give us all a better look at what you're experiencing on your rides.

Thanks!

i don't often film my rides, but when i do, i film descents. well, so far only 2 descents, and one featuring hay-eaters. no music, just wind and some "woohoo!"-ing.

riding with horsies in glacier national park

descent in northwest NY-holding a canon g12

eastward descent on kancamagus-holding an iphone

yes, i know 1-handing it just under 50mph going downhill is ridiculously dumb, but alas...for science!

Buzz 04-04-2015 11:21 PM

Here's one from a few years ago descending Monte Baldo near Verona. We hit 60 on the last ramp that was 19%.

Nice, but get a handlebar mount of some sort. I use a gorillapod with a conventional camera. I did buy a Sony video cam on Black Friday and need to start using it.

I find the handlebar mounts are a must vs holding something in your hand and trying to record video. Here's a bit of an embarrassing clip I took several years ago when I was first beginning to experiment with capturing ride video. This one involved holding my phone in my mouth while shifting gears.

It didn't work so well.

I can't seem to escape the wind this spring. Yesterday was another day of battling strong winds but I'm sure I'm a better rider for it...maybe just a little more tired.

For some odd reason I typically do this route in the reverse from how I rode it in the video last Tuesday. I enjoy how a change like that can give a different perspective or feel to a ride.

What camera are you using Kevin? It looks very smooth.

onekgguy 04-21-2015 06:25 PM

Lucasp...I use a GoPro Hero 2 with a bar mount. The smoothness is mostly attributable to my iMovie software and its smoothing ability.

Thanks!

Not me
 
Let's be clear, this video is not me. It's someone I know who knows how to race in the pro class. I'm old, I kinda know how to edit and had a camera. So we teamed up.

Crit - Rain - I show what one full lap looked likes and then, as best I can, what is' like to race and this dude knows how to race . . . I think it came out OK. Music is fun, too. He got top 5. Here are some elements: Mark McCormack, gapping the field, dudes with gels under their bibs in skin suits and no where to be seen when it counts, rain, corners, dudes moving up 5 spaces in the last 100m . . . you get the drill.

That's the camera I have, but my videos are typically a little rougher. Darn those Chicago roads.

Here's a short time lapse I made from the first third of Almanzo 100 last year.
A little hard to see here, but at :25 there were three horses ran along with our group.

It wasn't quite 50s f when I left home this morning to meet up with some friends, one of which was doing his first road ride. I typically ride solo but this was a nice change of pace for me. It was nice to hear Hynek talk about how much he was enjoying himself. I think we have a new one among our ranks!

Yes, I think the driver opening the door into me was more surprised than I was. He sorta shrieked. It was a good thing for Hynek to see as his experience on a bike has been mostly on mtb trails.

Latest one taken this past weekend with me trying out bikepacking for the first time on the Surly Trucker carrying almost 80 Ibs worth of camping gear.

The only thing I can say is....the trucker RULES!...even though the total weight is astronomical.

165 (man) + 30 (trucker) + 80 (gear) = 275 Ibs !!!

80 pounds ??? For a weekend outing?

Weisan, many folks cross the entire country with far less than that. I'm no expert, but I think you need to put your gear on a serious diet.

weisan 04-29-2015 11:33 PM

Louis pal, this is more like a "test" to see where the limits are, certainly an overkill for one night stay.

Louis 04-29-2015 11:38 PM

You making plans for some serious touring?

weisan 05-01-2015 06:34 AM

Yes, one-pal! It was really quite fun on that downhill stretch especially on the trucker...I mean, that thing is so stable especially when it's all loaded up with gear, I just let it ripped, no braking, nuthin', it's actually quite an eye-opener to compare a bike that is built specifically for loaded touring to my regular road bikes. Different tools and used correctly, they each fulfilled their intended purpose very well.

I have no qualms about bringing the trucker on an extended 80daysroundtheworld trip, it's built really really tough, kudos to the folks at Surly.

Here's a closer look at my setup.

Surly! Right down the road from me. :)

Looks like a blast!

tiretrax 05-01-2015 10:18 AM

Wei-pal, the guy who road around the world didn't have 80 lbs of gear! Did you bring a Coleman stove and a 6 person tent?

So, Niles favorite road is chip-seal? Crazy!

Looks like fun and one of the best parts of our State. It looks like some trees are starting to grow back from the devestating wildfires of a few years ago. Yes?

weisan 05-01-2015 04:33 PM

Tire-pal, don't worry, I know what I am doing, this is a "test", I added stones cut out of the grand canyon, just want to see what it feels or rides like with an over loaded bike going through the different terrain, road and weather conditions. You never know, one day I may have to haul my catch of the day all the way back to basecamp.
http://i27.tinypic.com/n63rps.jpg

I think what Niles appreciate about Siloh is riding through farmlands, not so much the chip seal.

No, none of the trees are growing back, they have to replant them.

onekgguy 05-01-2015 08:28 PM

Our mornings are still on the cool side with temps in the mid 40s. That doesn't stop me from heading out in my normal summer gear as I warm pretty quickly once I get moving.

My Mukluk has served me well for the past 3.5 years but it was time we parted. I'd been looking for something a little lighter with front suspension and I found it in the form of a carbon-fiber Sarma Shaman. It's such a fun ride and as I tell others about fat-bike riding: the bikes are time-machines. They'll take you back and allow you to find the 15 year old residing inside you longing to come out.

Sarma, Shaman, 2

This first video is from my 2nd ride on it. I'd never ridden in tall grass like this but the bike made easy work of it.

https://youtu.be/SVp-eN6lYsU

The 2nd video was from yesterday afternoon. I'd planned to go out walking for a few hours but my Shaman was begging me to take it to the trails.
