Cold and Windy

Even though I woke up to a snow covered driveway again, I was determined to get outside today.  Even though it was colder than the first day I rode, I was determined to get on my bike and ride.  Even though it was Good Friday and the physical distance affected line up to get fish and chips was probably going to be long, I was determined to ride a greater distance than my first day.

Because that is what I did, I can easily call that Today’s Perfect Moment.  I even remembered to bring my inflation equipment just in case. It was pretty windy and a bit cool to be wearing bike shorts, but you do what you have to do.

I shot the above video today and spent far too long editing it.  It is too long and the cuts are pretty horrible.  Feel free to abandon watching whenever you want.  I just wanted to try out my action camera and start to learn about editing.  I used the rudimentary software that came with the computer and it did an okay job the first time.  I tried to cut most of the scenes down further, but either my mouse wasn’t sensitive enough or I have absolutely no coordination.

I downloaded the software that was recommended by the vlogger Seth’s Bike Hacks (it’s a pretty cool channel and I encourage you to check it out) but I couldn’t seem to import the video footage to the software.  Rather than become frustrated I decided to work with the easier program.  I am sure I will take more video in the future.

    Pretty good for your first attempt. When did you get the camera? Did you have it in Columbia? Did you have fish and chips?

    Less is better on video editing. Make them pine for more. That’s the advice I got from a TV producer friend a few months ago. I use cyberlink to edit my videos. The annual subscription for the best version is under $70 US per year. You can also purchase version 17 or less for one time price of about the same. A free tutorial got me where I am today on editing. If I were 50 years younger, I would got to university for this.
