Sky Ride Etape Hibernia

I wanted to put a proper post up tonight but I haven’t finished cutting my film down so it’ll have to wait ’till tomorrow. In the mean time though I wanted to say a quick word about my weekend ride, it was absolutely incredible to be able to enjoy those stunning coastal roads completely traffic free thanks to the rolling road closure. The views were awesome, the weather was perfect and my legs felt great.

We were hosting seven of our clients in County Clare especially so that they could join us in riding the Etape Hibernia, and I played the role of domestique to one of the clients and was able to sit up, take in the scenery and cruise up the climbs at a pace that didn’t push my heart rate much out of the ‘warm-up’ zone.

There were around 1750 riders taking part and I got chatting to many a friendly Irishman, all of whom without fail would ask me what that device was mounted on my helmet.

Stay tuned for the results…

    Don't blame you! I shot with the GoPro on my handlebars/seatpost at the velodrome a couple of weeks ago, great camera but too bulky and heavy for helmet use in my opinion.The one I've got on there is the ContourHD, its much lighter and benefits from a swivelling lens for added flexibility, but i've had a lot of problems with it silhouetting footage whenever there's too much sky in the picture, which is very annoying.
