    Is that your point and shoot, or do you have an 'action camera' mounted to the big dummy? Been thinking about getting that Contour I see on sale everywhere now.

    The red robot was speeding down that trail too fast. But not the blue robot.

    How come no one got his head knocked off in the video?

    Actually red robot's head pops up in other videos I shot that day.

    OneEighth: The video of me following you through the S of Eternal Peril is pretty cool. The footage of me keeping pace with Mr. Colnago and chatting was pretty cool too. I'll try and edit a bit up and post it. Since I left the camera rolling from Lee Hwy all the way to 14th Street Bridge the file is 1.5GB. Man do the truck tires on that cargo bike howl. That camera is AMAZING.

    Again: Perfect riding with you this morning. Thank you.

    I'm glad I ran into you this morning. I always enjoy riding with you---especially because your consistently positive outlook is a good reminder that what counts is not what happens but how I handle it.
    Looking forward to seeing the video of my pitifully slow descent.
    And, yes, those tires howl.

    Indeed they should. I try to live it.

    Any audio that might have been heard was completely downed out by the howl of the tires. I can't wait to hear what that thing sounds like with studded tires on it. I geek out on the stupidest of things. I suppose I should be thinking more about rolling resistance than scaring small children.... but I can't bring myself to care about stuff like that with this bike.
