South Wales trail riding film and ride report


"I was up at 7am to check that the GoPro batteries had charged over night. Then it was a very cold 40 minute ride for Dave and myself to meet Gray and Darren in Ross. Once again I was the only person not on an orange bike!

Roll camera. Gray led and Dave swept up the rear. From Ross on Wye we headed towards the Wye Valley, riding a nice mixture of fire tracks, muddy and leafy lanes. A quick pit stop at Tintern Abbey for a sausage sandwich and a cup of tea and to wait for Joe to join us.

We refuelled and headed off for some more technical lanes, I managed to fall off in the smallest rut possible! Must stop checking the GoPro remote! A little rain, big puddles and some slippery rocks were the order of the afternoon heading towards Usk! A great ride out!!"

"I thought the film came out well, though I'm not sure if I prefer the helmet cam or chest cam. I shot at 25fps this time for a more filmic look and so the GoPro could take a photo every minute at the same time. My previous video was shot using 50fps which I personally think gives a smoother motion. Editing was done using Adobe Premiere CC with Magic Bullet Looks plugin. It took approximately 3 to 4 hours after I'd chosen the music."
