Video: Shadow Of The Sun

by 1

We all love an early morning ride, right? Setting off in the half light, dawn chorus drowning out your breath as you climb, then getting to the top of the hill just as the sun crests the horizon and those first warm rays filter through the air.

Well, we all know we could love an early morning ride, but all too often the warmth of the duvet or the chaos of the school run get between us and dawn ride delights. But it’s not too late. The sun will rise tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after…there’s still time to get out there and catch that sunrise, spinning along silent and deserted trails.

Whether you’re likely to do that dawn ride or it’ll forever be a pipedream, you’re sure to love this video featuring Brett Rheeder. Stick the headphones on for the full effect.

Can’t you just feel that warm glow of those first rays on the trees? Aren’t those silhouette shots simply stunning? And those tricks! Well, those really might have to be left to our dreams.

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
