Dad’s Bike Travels

Dad's Bike Travels from MTBikeAZ on Vimeo.

My daughter found a bunch of old Contour helmet cam video footage I shot years ago and surprised me with this short video. She’s always had a knack for editing. I have to say I love it. She pulled in some random music that was on the computer as well. Resourceful she is.

Her vid has some sweet footage of am MTBR spring Fling ride on the 50 year trail six years ago… SunDog was ripping it up. There’s some Bees Knees, Picketpost AZT, even some Brianhead dark hollow footage.

I’ve got probably got over 100 hours of raw footage sitting on a hard drive somewhere… I can’t seem to find it… Good thing for me I can still play it all out in my mind…

They arrived Christmas eve…so festively, I put them under the tree, and opened them in the morning. It doesn’t take long for […]
