Bike to work day, May 17, 2007
May 28, 2007
This was one of my more successful video adventures. The camera is actually attached to a GorillaPod, whose legs are tightly wrapped into an outside pocket of my backpack, where the binding is part of the fabric of the XtraCycle extension on the back of my bike. The intent here was to show what a cyclist in the Boston area might encounter/dodge on the way to work.
It’s also been useful to check things, like how steady a line I keep, and what my cadence actually is. For reference, this was recorded on a Canon Powershot SD550, no image stabilization, 320×240, 15fps. I split the video into four parts to (try to) cut the bandwidth consumption a little bit.
(My .Mac account can only stand about two of these.)
