Have now started to sort through some of the video material I shot out in Majorca with The Tyneside Vagabonds last month. Here is an assembly of clips from day 2, great memories! To enjoy the material at it's best watch it directly on YouTube in HD at either 720 or 1080p.
This was definitely the closest thing I've witnessed when descending on a bike. This was one of my mates descending in Majorca last week, it could have been really horrible, I've no idea how he remained upright and I'm just so glad he didn't end up hitting the end of the wall on the right. Best viewed at 1080 on YouTube.
Very early start this morning (07:00) for the TVCC 100 Mile TT but there was a good field for the race in spite of that. The winning time was 03:57:21 by Jon Sturman, quite how someone can ride a bike that fast for that long I really don't know!
I particularly enjoyed the bit where a stoat appeared and started running around the road which you can see at 07:02 - it's amazing what you see if you just sit quietly and wait to see what happens!
Random musings of a UK based cycling coach. In July 2010 rode the entire Tour de France route starting and finishing 3 days before the pros came through, particularly interested in power based training. Other interests include technology, video recording and editing, photography, sailing, the outdoor life and pretty much anything else!
