Let’s Ride!

Barton Creek Greenbelt

Barton Creek Greenbelt

I’m going to try something new. With the racing season at a slow point, I find myself looking for other things to do when it comes to videos and things to write about.

While I was out riding my new (to me) Jet9 yesterday, and doing a little trail videoing, I thought it might be cool to do some “Let’s Ride…” videos that highlight certain trails and/or segments.

Depending on how this goes, I may or may not do a lot, and I may or may not do much editing with them. I want to try out some different ways of doing it.

With/without music and/or ride audio
Solo or with riding friends
Edited or full length

My current thinking is that these will be pretty raw. Maybe some light editing, possibly for stabilization and likely will include telemetry data.

The first video will be up soon and covers one of my favorite segments in the Barton Creek Greenbelt, the nearly all downhill, rocky, loose, W.F.O. descent called Travis Country Pumphouse (to Barton Creek).

Let me know what you think!

  1. I think its a really cool thing to do man, I tried to start doing that up here in Dallas. That was actually one of my original goals with the TXMTB channel. But the files just took too long to put together and I don’t care much for the video editing sometimes… soooo yeah.

    My point in short, DO IT!

    • Yeah, I may do them here and there, but I doubt it’ll become a full blown segment. I’ve also been thinking of maybe doing a regular ‘X Trail in 2/3 Minutes’ and do a nice edited version of trails I hit up. Probably more interesting by and large and would make for better videos, but would take much longer to make for sure.
