Today On A Bike

My wife, my amazing wonderful wife, got me a GoPro Hero 4 Black for my birthday It’s been fun learning how to best use it for what I want out of it The mountain bike pictures are from yesterday riding Wildlife MTB trails in Peoria Illinois with friends The trails are rocky and offer both tight tech as well as flow, a great time if you’re in the area.

Bonus pictures from last week on the road bike I bought a couple of K-Edge GoPro mounts on the advice of a friend I bought a saddle rail camera mount as well as a mount for under my Garmin mount, allowing me to shoot video or take pictures facing forward or backward.

What My Tuesdays Look Like

Tuesday evenings during spring and summer host one of my favorite weekly rides. It’s a throw down on road bikes that range in mileage from about thirty to over fifty depending on how much daylight we have. We ride the same route every Tuesday which includes several hills and turns. Having twenty people there to ride is commonplace. Everyone knows the sprint points, everyone knows the contented hills. It’s the best kind of friendly race, and it happens every week. It’s great, in a painful kind of way.

Just over a week ago, one of my awesome teammates David decided to skip the ride in favor of resting his legs and also to break out a camera to capture the action. The camera brought out the attacker in all of us it seemed. I’m grateful to have some nice pictures of this weekly ride, it’s nice to have them documented to look back on.
