When Fools Ride (Gary Rides WC2C)
On 4th of August 2012, I started out to ride Wales Coast to Coast offroad on Dave Buchanan’s route. I was riding to raise money for charity, specifically Cots for Tots which is part of Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal which is Bristol’s Children’s Hospital charity. You can find out more about the ride and my fundraising at: garyrides.co.uk
This film is my story of that ride. It doesn’t tell the whole story, because it would be too long and it wasn’t possible to capture that story anyway. Besides, you probably had to be there anyway, thanks crew! Anything that’s obviously live, is live, and happened as seen. Anything that looks like I probably had to go back out on the route several times and film loads of riding stuff, probably is!
The story is of a 24 hour long ride that turned into 36 hours. Mainly due to weather, navigation, naivety and total inexperience doing long A-B challenges by myself.
Shot on a Canon 5D mk2 and 550D, a Sony FS700, a GoPro Hero HD2, and a V.I.O. POV HD
Directed, Produced and Edited: Gary Lake

Oculus Rift + Kinect + KickR = Our Homage to Paperboy: PaperDude VR
PaperDude VR is built in Unity with 3D assets created in 3D studio and textured in Photoshop. The KickR sensor detects the speed of the bike and has the ability to provide programatically controlled resistance. The KickR communicates speed and cadence through bluetooth to a nearby iPad which updates our app over OSC.
The Oculus Rift VR headset lets you look around your scene in a full 360 degrees and allows you to focus your newspaper aim. The Kinect controller tracks the positions of your hands and arms, and detects the paper-throwing gesture.
Globacore creates custom branded videogames and interactive exhibits.

Bob Burnquist’s “Dreamland” – A Backyard Progression
Among the most influential skateboarders the industry has ever seen, Bob Burnquist is still innovating. In his new webisode series, Burnquist grants his fans exclusive access to the private domain in which so many of his contributions to skateboarding were born, his backyard in Southern California, better known as “Dreamland.” Hence, “The Dreamland Series.”
To lead off the series, we see something from Burnquist that hasn’t been seen since 2010: a full-length video part filled with never-before-seen footage. And, the Hip. Yes, he added a Hip feature onto his personal MegaRamp. A Hip that starts up on a hill and sends him across a 15-foot gap into the 25-foot quarterpipe. You know, something mellow.
Thanks to everyone that sent in suggestions this week. If you’ve seen or made anything you reckon should be up here next time, the address is, as ever: firstname.lastname@example.org.
And remember: Keep feeling fascination, yeah?
