Sky Ride Etape Hibernia (part 2)

We filmed a lot of stuff over the whole long weekend so that I could edit it all together to show everyone at dinner on Sunday night after the ride. That film had quite a bit of ‘you had to be there’ stuff so I’ve shortened it down to the main chunks which I feel sum up our weekend.

I was a little disappointed by the shakiness of some of the head-cam footage but some of those road surfaces were amongst the roughest and most pot-holey I’ve ever ridden on so I’m not really surprised. I wish I could have had a second camera to capture another angle but ah well.

Here it is…

    I can't believe you put that together in one night, after an 85-mile ride. Good effort. Ride looks like it was great fun – it has got me all excited for Gran Fondo all over again. Large group rides are awesome. The weather looked tasty, too – I need a break from the heat. It's only noon and already 104F. Miserable!

    I shrank it down to fit.Haven't had a chance to watch it yet, however.

    Ah no worries, I swapped the video round before I saw your comment.And I didn't put that together in just one night, the first 30 seconds I did in half a day before we left for Ireland, then everything up to the training ride (there used to be a lot more) I did in about 5 hours on Saturday afternoon, then finished it off in about 4 hours after the ride on Sunday. It was probably the fastest I've ever edited though!I so need to go riding again…

    Great video. Makes me want to ride too.As for the editing, I'm still impressed. I can't find the time to do anything more than add music over the top of the clips I'm posting.

    I hear that. This was for work so finding the time wasn't the problem, stuff that's for me on the other hand… takes forever to get round to cutting.
