    This is my first video production in 10 years and my first cycling video haha. Will never be a pro but I want to learn the basics to record my rides properly.

    Today I rode with @Ramon around our city with some small climbs and descents and beautiful forests.

    Much better scenery than my ride today:

    1) Mobile homes
    2) Lots of Donald Trump yard signs (will be glad when Nov 9 comes)
    3) Plenty of road kill
    4) A few buzzards enjoying that road kill
    5) Rednecks

    Nice work Bram!
    Some great footage and beautiful scenery you have there! Just getting to grips with my cam too - I also haven't done any video stuff for years. Stay tuned for some snoozeworthy stuff from me once i figure out what what i'm doing :D

    Nice video, Bram. I always enjoy seeing where others ride. It's great seeing the subtle differences in terrain, traffic, and scenery of where we all are spread out amongst the planet despite all sharing such a common interest/activity.
    James, my brother, we must be close neighbors, as that sounds like almost every ride I've done this year. :D

    My ride through Utrecht City Center. Brakes were still wet from the bike cleaning, hence the squeaky sound in the beginning.

    Used superview for recording which makes it look that I am really close to objects, but this wasn't the case irl.

    These Go pros are a bit expensive here, what's another close alternative? or maybe I could get something off ebay.

    No matter how many weather apps you install in your smartphone there will always be cycling days where the forecasts are WAY OFF.

    Yesterday was such a day. The Weather Channel and my local TV station talked about a 5% chance of rain with clear skies in the afternoon. After a week of rain and cold weather that sounded like a nice prediction for a change. Time to head out on the bike for a long solid ride then. Guess what: 105% rain instead and rule #9 of the cycling bible enforced :)

    We have an epic mainly unpaved cycle patch nearby called the Let de Stigterpad and I wanted to make it a round trip of roughly 80km completing this patch (and some more). You can watch a small piece of the ride as a video and ill run the full route soon when its better weather. Stay tuned!

    Thanks Bram, Great footage. I really enjoyed watching that with my morning coffee :)

    Seems we had pretty similar conditions this weekend - looks like a lovely area to ride too.

    We don't have mountains over here but a few small hills that I try to tackle during my rides. This one I ride often including today.

    Did a timelapse of one of my regular rides last Saturday. Unfortunately the battery ran out about 15mins from home but still pretty cool. This is what 3hrs riding compressed into 5 mins looks like :)
