I'm a minimalist when it comes to cycling. No GPS, no heart rate monitor, no bike computer. And I only wear gloves when its cold outside. But I've always wanted something small and easy to pack on my rides to take pics or video. So many weird and funny things happen on rides but rarely get captured on film.
My wife and kids bought me a Flip Video for Fathers Day. The perfect gift for a cyclist. It's tiny. About as big as my Blackberry Pearl. It can record up to an hour of video with a 4 hour charge.
This morning, I tried it out on a test ride up AF Canyon with Dug, Elden and Karl. I was hoping to see the bearded woman or the moose that almost killed Dug. Nothing exciting happended on today's ride but I was prepared in case it did.
Check out the video clip of Fatty climbing up AF. The background is amazing. One of the best road rides around.
