I had a crash today.
Ouch! Do you find the Go Pro and Garmin encourage you to go faster every time? My Garmin does that to me, and I can only imagine that if I had a camera strapped to me I would be even worse! Hope you’re okay, looks like you landed a bit hard on your elbows.
Where is that, by the way? Looks like a fun trail?Posted 6 years ago
Cheers guys.Posted 6 years ago
That trail is Windy Point at Whites Level, Afan.
I find my GoPro makes me ride faster than I should.
Its like having an audience strapped to your chest..
I think I knew I was going to hit that tree and dived off.
Afan is my regular trail and by that I mean that I ride it at least once per week.
I never expected to crash there cause I know it like the back of my hand.
I am one of those idiots who likes to wear his GoPro on the trails.
Unfortunately sometimes it makes me ride quicker then I should.
I crashed today but I think I may have gotten away with it!!
Please don’t insult me as I’m in lots of pain at the moment.

Glad you survived without undue broken/damaged parts. That looks like a very fast (and fun) trail—reminds me of a couple portions of the Taos South Boundary Trail here in New Mexico/USA. You can get going faster than you realize and one moment’s lapse of focus/attention and those bike-magnet trees can suck you right in.Posted 6 years ago
What was the distance of the portion you recordedno_eyed_deerMember
Yeay… another ‘fast-sliding-front-wheel-wash-out-elbow-landing-crasher’ 😉
Ace video, kinda a this:is:why for non-mtbers.
Beautiful day too. Cherrrist – how’d you get the sun in Afan? It was ming here in Cambrian mtns yesterday.
Nice shifters. Mmmmmmm redwin red. 8)Posted 6 years agoMilkieMember
Haha another one bites the dust!
Glad you’re ok, I managed to crash twice at Afan on Saturday, one into a felled tree and an OTB incident, after making sure a guy was ok after he went for a tumble down the hillside.
Where did that sun come from!? It was raining Saturday, so much so you could hardly see the trail ahead!
The Lasagne at the cafe made up for the bad weather. 😉Posted 6 years agobatfinkMember
I fell into a bramble-bush at Afan a couple of weeks ago, tore the arse out of my shorts 😯
Re the GoPro “clicking” noise: It’s because on the chesty mount you can’t get the little orange rubber bung in place. If you unclip the camera, and put two strips of electrical tape onto the chest-plate (where the clip slides in), it tightens things up and stops the annoying clickingPosted 6 years ago
