One year of riding, in 15 minutes!
« on: February 15, 2021, 11:03:06 am »
I thought I would post up a 'sort of' ride report.  I often capture photos and videos on my rides, but most of this material is pretty uninteresting because, well, I am a crappy photographer and tend to grab quantity ove quality. 

I also have recently 'retired' (read as quit, because I have a chronic boss allergy) .  So I have free time to deal with a hard drive full of riding video and photos.  I've managed to squeeze down a year of riding between last bit of 2019 and 2020 into 15 mins and I am pretty pleased with results.  What was mind numbing, is now only slightly boring!!

For those of you with better things to do than waste 15mins watching my amateur production, here is a summary of what is included:

A few beautiful vistas
Some exotic locales
Some creative effects
Some excitement
... and quite a bit of me falling over:

And for maximum disappointment, the full video is here;

Thanks for the comment @Ri

I'm sure that most watchers won't get through the whole video.  Problem with editing your own stuff, everything is interesting to you... good memories and all.

So for those wanting to just catch the highlights:

Morocco: 0:20 to 4:05
Ficksburg (area): 4:57 to 6:12
The Wild Coast: 10:39 to 16:34
Maintenance!! I don't need no stinkin maintenance!

I'll still get around to watching it. You can also split it into 3 shorter videos  :deal: (no pressure)

Thanks
Very interesting!
Morocco looks just like parts of Namibia. :thumleft:
I have been in parts of the Wildcoast, but not on a bike, still on my wishlist!
I ride through the Clarens/ Ficksburg area a lot and now want to take the Ttr with and make a weekend of riding there!
You had some good trips, jealous!
