Last fall Rob and I played around with mounting a camcorder to our handle bars to document our routes. The goal was to create an archive of sorts of local bike commutes linking them to our google map of bike routes. This project sat on the backburner until awoken by our friend over at King & Ottawa who likely isn’t familar with life as a bike commuter.
Some of us have dream routes while other commuters ride a daily nightmare. In particular Rob’s route is a grind. I’ve told him many times that I would have never cycled his route in the winter on a regular basis.
Councillors take note
If you’re a city councillor or planner take note. Segrageated bike infrastructure is desperately needed for crossing the Conestoga Parkway. It’s a death trap for cyclists. These aren’t sexy, we do incriminate ourselves breaking a law or two, but it represents the start and end of our work days using a bike.
If you’ve read this far
And watched the videos, you probably have issues like us. Give us a shout and pass along your daily grind (aka bike route via video or url). If you need a camera, let us know as we can probably help.
