The ultimate UK trail ride?March 9, 2015
River Green Mill – Green Lane Saved!March 23, 2015
If you are lucky enough to live in South Wales you will know how good the network of green roads are on your doorstep. Earlier this year, Martin, Dave, Joe, Darren and Gray of South Wales TRF hit the lanes armed with a GoPro and a 'banging tune'.
"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."
