Hi

May or may not be of any interest, great place for early season cycling is Majorca. I'll post a series of these, might be of general interest.

    cor - lovely - did yo all get the same bikes from the bike hire company?

    really well edited, well done.
    The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns
    momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

    Thanks Cleat

    The guy with the Kyklos with the electronic shifting had taken his own bike but the rest were hired, very convenient it was too. Nobody had any significant problems with the bikes, certainly no more than would have been experienced on our own machines. Saved a load of hassle and I'd probably hire again, cost no more than taking our own and avoided the very real risk of damage.

    Thanks again for the kind words, lots more to come for anyone who's interested!

    More vids needed. I have to be honest though,the eye render doesn't do anything for the video.

    Fear not, there will be more. As for the vignette it's all down to personal preference and the comments relating to the editing so far have been +ve so I'll probably stick with the current approach for this series, I hope it won't detract too much from your enjoyment.

    Nice video and i recognise a few of the faces too. Gosforth RC head out in a couple of weeks and watching that is making me really envious as I can't make it this year. I will just have to make do with the wind, rain and crappy road surfaces around the lanes of northumberland.

    The riding around here coupled with the present weather is just grim and to be honest I'm struggling to be bothered with it at the moment. I just don't see the point in getting cold, wet and miserable just so that I can be fit enough to go and get cold wet and miserable again the following week :roll:
