Blissed Out in Spring and Autumn

As I mentioned yesterday, I had one of those memorable, soul-feeding Autumn rides on Monday. I have made a video similar to one I did in the Spring a couple of years ago, one that has become my most popular youtube video by far. In these days of youtube vids with millions of views, that isn't saying much since that one has been viewed just over 600 times, but that makes it #1 among mine.

I've skimmed the archives and don't think I ever posted that video here on the blog. If I did and missed it somehow, please let me know. Anyway, here's the "old" Spring video:



Now, Autumn blissed-out action from Monday Oct 24:




Perhaps this type of video is more popular because I'm not trying to be funny or anything. Who knows? In any case, I secretly hope that when you're sitting inside during a snowstorm in the long deep dark days of winter, jonesing for a bike ride in the fresh air, you'll come back to these videos for a dose of bike zen. Of course, that could just make things worse...

Nice work Rantwick. The musical scores add a classy touch and really seem to compliment the video footage better than rock music used in many bike vids.

That's some cool, zen video, yo! Nice music to go with it. Good one, Patrick!!

Hey, thanks guys. Glad you liked 'em.

You should really make a 'training' video' so I can ride my Rocky Mountain inside but still pretend that I'm outside riding with it.

Guess I'll just have to close my eyes while riding and imagine it all! ;)

Great work.
I have a tacx VR trainer and your ride is better than their "professional" Real life videos.
Thanks for taking us on the ride

Carolyn and JDP - Looks like I should be investigating a new sideline...
