VHS won out over Betamax, Blu-ray spanked HD DVD but the quickly flashing pictures on internet will beat them all eventually, mark my words. Such things aside, here are some riding videos that will set your mind on the road to righteousness via the bicycle. It’s a bumper crop this week too..
2011 Orange Five Exclusive
Here’s an edit from Stu at MTBCut about the new Orange Five. It’s got a quick rundown of the new features, some ace riding from MacAskill and Barnes – and some bloke from the other other mountain bike magazine in it, but watch it anyway…
Lee Quarry Trails
Tim Royle has shot a new video at Lee Quarry (where the Singletrack Classic Weekender is happening this weekend – ENTER NOW!) with Ali Clarkson and Stan Shaw from TartyBikes with guest appearances from the guys at Ride On.
Taking in some of Europe’s most beautiful locations, including the Matterhorn and the Ligurian coast, this is Ionate Films follow up to Virtuous. If you get yourself down to Delamere Cafe at 8pm on the 8th of July they’re having a showing there – see the news piece HERE.
Transition Bikes Time Bandits V4
The Transition team head back to home turf in Port Angeles to take a shot at the podium in the third round of the NW Cup.
Out In The Woods
A rather arty quick flick from Somhairle MacDonald from High-8 playing on a bike in the woods above Strathblane on Cuilt Hill, Scotland. For a good idea of what taking way too much acid is like check out his Ben Lomond video as well…
A morning in Stypersons
Alex sent us this video of him messing about in the local woods – despite being only 7 acres it looks rather good fun. Lovely light too..
End of June
More from Cardiff area as Nick Kane returns to MMM, having got serious after his last lo-fi effort and roped in his son to do some extra camera work – it’s got a cable cam and everything this time. Nice to see the dog still gets a quick look in.
It’s been excellent to see you lot getting involved and making your own edits – you don’t need big budgets, helicopters and big name riders jumping off cliffs to get to the heart of what riding bikes is all about, so get on the case. Keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org…
