Some of you may know I have been a fan of the bicycle since I was 2 1/2 years old (heck, see the picture here to prove it
!), I've virtually done it all. From at first being a basic rider then graduating to BMX freestyle
in elementary school (and breaking my arm off a half-pipe), to having a bike as my main mode of transportation throughout the first few years of college at Winona State
and then on to mountain biking (MTB
) as well as road cycling, I've almost done it all with a bicycle!
Well, after going over the handlebars a few weeks back, I said t the guy I was riding with, Pat
, that I should have had that on video. Well, the next time I went out, I figured I'd strap my GoPro 5
to my helmet and take a ride! I went out on Saturday, July 27th with a different friend, John, out to Lake Rebecca along with a few others from my local bike shop, Michael's Cycles
I didn't crash, but a few (including John
) did! Sorry I don't have those on video, but you can see from the below, I was on my own for a good portion of the 2-hour ride. I only got about 40 minutes of it on video and even then, I sped it up and clipped out most of it to about 4 minutes.
