Go! Get Out there!
Trying something new here.
Each week, for a little while at least, we’ll be posting a ‘curated’ playlist of videos from the internet to add to your arsenal of entertainment. The playlists are intended to help pass the time while riding bicycles inside. The videos are basically hand picked from the videos we’ve watched, while training inside, but weeding out the ones that totally sucked…
They are mostly about cycling.. perhaps with a few wild cards mixed in.
We’re thinking we’ll post them up each week on Sunday afternoon, so that y’all can have them to use during the week as needed.
Let us know what you think, what you like, dislike, or if you have other videos that you think we should check out!
A great film by Adrian Moat
So we posted a video of some dudes riding 200mi on rt 100 the other day… they were a couple pro’s and an amateur… and then, there is this guy:
Basically, Steve Abraham of England will be riding more than 200+ miles everyday in 2015, shooting for a 74 year old record of most miles covered in a calendar year. The current record was set by Tommy Godwin also of England, who according to internet generic, not Strava, his record is 75,065 mi (120,805 km) for 1 calendar year.
These are the dudes from Mass’ that ride some of the same roads as Matt. They are super legit, doing the darn thang on the national and international stage(s).
I like this video because it paints them as normal humans. I can’t wait ’till the snow melts and the days lengthen a bit. 200mi rides are where it’s at.
Can’t wait ’til my favorite CNY holiday… Dante’s Day!!
This interview with Tim Johnson from Manual for Speed is great, he talks about how he got into riding bikes, and the difference between riding for a job, and riding because you love to ride. Tim is from a couple towns over from where I’m from in Massachusetts, and I ride a lot of the same roads/trails as him. This summer I tried my best to run into him on those roads, but was never lucky enough. Would loved to share some pulls with him on the quiet roads of the North Shore!
