|Up, up, up to Council Crest Park for the great view. My new Specialized Diverge made the ride all the more excellent.|
I had a new bike for the ride and Mel had some new toys -- two helmet-mounted video cameras.
Each ride Mel likes to choose a different bike or trike from his shop to test and photograph. The mission yesterday was to get some good footage of Mel on a rugged HP Velotechnik Scorpion.
Despite having a well-stocked bike shop from which to take gear, Mel usually forgets to bring a bag of any kind. As a result when we parted we swapped cameras, Mel not having the ability to carry safely two cameras. He wanted my footage as he planned to make a video showing the trike in action.
From the camera on Mel's helmet I made this video which shows some of Portland's finest scenery on a beautiful fall day. Note Mel's custom biking Birkenstock sandals.
