March 18, 2016

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 […]
