Getting to one of my “local” pump tracks and wiping myself out for an hour or two sis such good exercise.
It also means I get to dress in skinny jeans and wear my POC lid.
Honestly 75% of that video (not the bit with me in the car obviously) was filmed with my DJI Spark drone. I’m pleased with how it came out and how I got some lucky shots and angles completely by accident. For instance if you look at the sequence at 1:55 in, this was only set up to capture 1 pass, but the 3 passes on all 3 lines was such a bonus!
Any way hope you like this – if you did please leave a comment on the video, give it a thumbs up and please subscribe!
It was really nice to meet Sian and Thomas at the Cycle Show last week and to get a look at the many products that Cyclorise distribute in the UK. Getting a close up look at the Louri frame strap and getting my own in a bike colour matching orange was a bonus.
The strap allows you to attach some essentials to your bike for races or when you want to travel a little lighter. Its really useful and easy to use – watch my video for the full low down.
The Louri strap costs £18.99 for the frame version and £17.99 for the saddle mount version.
So why would you watch my “channel”? What’s different about it?
Well, my aim is to produce content that you can relate to, it might not go viral or make you jealous but it might just make you realise that (if you didn’t already know) you can have fun on a bike just about anywhere and on any budget.
I want to grow the subscribers and I’m going to keep trying to figure out just what it is that will make my channel tick, with out forcing it and by continuing to be me. However Youtube, like all social media platforms, has its peculiarities and you have to know how to work it to make it work for you… That’s the tough part.
Anyway, watch this space. Maybe by the time you read this the channel will have 142 subscribers!
But while you are here, why not go and watch this video and please tell me what you thought of it… Please??
Its a bit click baity, but I have to try anything these days to get views!
If you haven’t been to BikePark Wales in a while you might not know they’ve made some new trails – 7 in all. Well I rode 5 of them on Monday and in the video above you can see montage of my day.
I’ve put a shortcut below to each trail and highlighted the 5 new ones with an asterisk. I have also colour coded the trails Blue and Red.
Please note that ACDCand Watts Occurring are graded as RED below but are a bit of a step up in some ways. Any other trail centre and they might be considered BLACK as they have some features that require commitment and in some parts of the trail there is no obvious line choice.
Anyway, i hope you enjoy the video and your next visit to BikePark Wales…
