When I look at the web, I get a kick out of watching videos. To that end, I decided to make some of my own. I got a cool little camcorder called a flip, and bought the gadget that they make that you can strap onto your handle bars and secure the camcorder onto it. Time to get shots of today’s bike ride–of both the view and of ME!
My husband and I set off for a ride after lunch, both of our dogs following us. It’s a beautiful day, although still a bit cold. I decided it was a perfect day to try to videotape the ride.
I’d share what I got, but really, it’s kind of silly. The longest clip is of me setting it up on my bike–there’s an occasional glimpse of the picture-perfect day, with the beautiful green trees, blue sky and a few puffy white clouds. You see a glimpse of my husband, and a lot of my hand and my orange jacket. It ends with me trying to get my sweet, deaf dog out of the road as a car approaches her.
When we started riding I thought I had pushed the “record” button, but I guess I turned it off! No video for you all to enjoy, but I’ll bet it will be a lot more fun for you to get out and see your own scenery, ride with your own spouse, friends, pet, or self, and finish by feeling a lot more achievement than you would just by watching me ride!
And don’t worry, the dog’s fine!
