I watch a lot of videos pertaining to biking — not so much the pro cyclists, although I watch those too, even when it’s not Tour de France time. But I prefer to watch videos about everyday folks who like to do the same things you and I do: ride our bikes.
The first video was called to my attention to promote the Marfa 100, a ride out in the funky west Texas town of Marfa, which benefits the public radio station out there and the Livestrong Foundation.
The next video was created by our frequent guest poster Jeff Hemmel. Although Jeff lives in Florida, he spends part of every summer in the Adirondacks of upstate New York, enjoying the cooler weather and the hillier cycling terrain. Here’s a look at the countryside he frequently travels.
I’m open to showing others’ videos on this site — but they must be about biking, and I won’t take just any poorly-executed video that’s shot as an afterthought. So get out there with your camcorders, run the video through an editing program, and send me a link to it. Whether I continue this feature depends upon your reaction to it.
Nice Adirondack video. It’s such a nice part of the world to ride. I wonder if Jeff conveniently makes it up here in time for the horse racing in Saratoga?
No horse racing, but it is nice to enjoy the weather!
On a side note, that video footage was shot in about an hour the day before we left. Really doesn’t do justice to the area, as there are some great views, waterfalls, windmills, huge dairy farms, etc. Maybe next year!

I’ve got quite few “traffic incident” vids and me and my lad MTBing type films on my site, I love filming and taking photos while I’m riding, but I am very much aware that my recording of all things bikey is very much a work in progress. It’s harder than you think!
