Exclusive video: Cycling in November sucks

9 Comments 13 November 2010

If you’re read our blog before, you know that I just got my helmet camera from GoPro a week ago and finally had the time to edit a short clip of a ride in quite terrible weather in November. As I’ve already mentioned, this month is probably the worst for riding as there’s anything from ice to snow to slush to water on the street and this can change in one hour or even when riding from my place to the city center which is close to the sea, whereas it’s more of a continental weather where I live.

Still, this video is both a test of the GoPro HD and a tribute to November and the fact that the month sucks.

Hope you enjoy it!

  • November suburbia. Another reason to live downtown. Muahaha.

    Nice vid. I’ve been thinking about buying a GoPro for first person flying rc-planes. It might be good for some city cycling propaganda as well.

    Oh well, I’ve promised myself no new toys for the winter. Maybe for my next birthday.

    Nicely made video. I was just thinking how those paths are going to be when the snow comes. I bet they won’t clear a lot of them. What’s your snow plan?

  • They actually do clear the roads quite effectively in here, but with studded tyres and a good attitude, I think I’ll be fine. If we’ll even get a lot of snow this year.

    ps. I like your e-mail addresses in the comments ;)

    OMG. Looks disgusting. In many ways. :)

  • Our GoPro is always available for loan.

    Nice soundtrack, I thought I was the only person who picked up Ghosts.

About Comingthru

Coming Thru (or Coming Through - as that URL was taken) is a daily updated bike magazine - a collection of writings and links that relate to biking in its every form. The idea started from when Maarten met Markus decided to finally start collecting the things we like about bikes and talk about our everyday adventures in dodging moving objects at high speeds.The site is run by a collage of cyclists, most notably by Canadian Johanna MacDonald, Belgian Maarten Patteeuw and Finnish Markus Sandelin.

It all started in the spring of 2010, after a record breaking snowy winter when Markus bought a house 25 kilometers from the office and decided to handle the commuting with a bicycle. It turned out the bike wasn’t up to standards for that kind of stress and the first weeks were more tragicomic than glorious. Thus the idea began to brew to actually document this journey.
