You tube cycling vlogs!

Postby Toks » Tue Nov 15, 2016 06:59 am

Cycling's popularity in recent years and the go pro has led to lots of cycling vlogs. I don't follow any religiously but do check out Cycling Maven, Durainrider (nutter!) And Vegan cyclist. Are there any good british ones?

Durianrider is one of the biggest bellends on the Internet.

assume you're familiar with GCN? not all 'vlog' but is high quality cycling content on youtube now covering just about everything you'd ever need to know.

The GCN Videos are mostly pretty cool
I found "cycling cam" - british racer - a bit too garrulous but his vvlogs are well mAde

I watch GCN almost religiously but (not surprisingly) they are repeating content and really annoyingly trying to push their merchandise.

Useful for the beginner mechanic and the spin sessions are OK, even if they don't rate them personally (was one of their own comments a while back) and the GCN show is a good round up for the week.

I watch as follows:

Subscribed to -
- GCN - like Top Gear/The Grand Tour with bikes and no bellends (I'd imagine. I've never watched TG or TGT.)
- The Vegan Cyclist - personable presenter (ymmv), entertaining Cat2 Race analysis over his own onboard footage
- Cyclelogue - vlog-style with a good balance of cycling and other life stuff - feels personal without being mundane, like a good chat with your cycling buddy

Watch occasionally -
- Shane Miller - some interesting indoor-trainer based content
- Bobke TV - ... if your very eccentric american uncle did a weekly round-up
- Cycling Maven - very slick production quality but a bit too meandering for me to watch consistently

Actively avoid -
Durainrider - I agree with Bondurant

Re british vlogs, haven't come across anyone I wanted to watch more than once.

Philip Hindes of Team GB fame has a YouTube channel. Doesn't post as much recently, but he did do quite a few semi-interesting one's last year in the run up to the Olympics.

Bit late to the party, but I'd add Francis Cade and possibly Keira Mcvitty to the list, both pretty good, particularly the former.

The best cycling vlog hands down is Francis Cade on YouTube.
It's rather London-centric but incredibly well made...especially his bike-fit Tuesday vids....

Agree with this. I watch Cycling Cam purely because there is a lack of UK based cycling content but Francis Cade's videos are fantastic.

You'd think there would be more...amateur road racers are the biggest bunch of bullshit talkers on the planet...and I say that as one of the worst offenders :lol:

I like Francis, but it must be said, in 3 of 5 of his videos, nothing actually happens. There have been some good ones, but 12 minute video on a local cafe club run isn't quite as interesting for me as some of the others he's done.

The balance is what I like. And some of the cinematography is great for something shot on a handheld, widely available Sony camera.

If memory serves me right, believe he said that his style of 'vlog' is aimed at the people behind the bike, more than just cycling itself. Although he does know how to record some great footage. One day maybe he will do more specific cycling videos.

A few others I have come across, some more active than others, but good none the less. There are probably a few more but these tend to be the more active ones on my subscription list.

I've come across this by chance before. I hate to hate, but I didn't care for it. It seems like a strong/gifted rider that likes to prey on ideal situations to self promote.

"Hey, look at me dropping these Team Sky riders who have probably trained for 2 hours before I came across them totally knackered".

"Hey, look at me dominate this TT hill climb. And by the way, I'm vegan." :roll:

It's a very self righteous and preachy kind of watch.

I also find some of the power meter readings on the video a bit BS. Why? I found the segment from the one video and found a relevant male rider and time for that segment. The power avg for it was around 270 to just under 300. I don't think in the video his "power" ever pegged lower than at least 340 and would have averaged closer to 400w.

I take any self-produced "look what I do" bicycle videos with a grain of salt. Whether they're an amazing athlete or not.

What you're saying sounds nothing like The Vegan Cyclist. I think you're actually referring to Durian Rider.

Kym non-stop is worth a look - not a dedicated cycling vlog but a fair amount of cycling content and she's hot.
