Head films

Not cling or snuff........but head films. Or rather helmet, .....see where this is going, helmet films yeah, with a camera. That's right a helmet cam.
I've gone and bought a helmet cam. To enjoy those lovely rolling jaunts over and over and over again. No really, imagine. You have just finished a wopping, epic, arm numbing, eye watering ride with a big funk off smile on your face. GREAT. Now the memory of that ride will stick with you forever, etched into your grey matter. But. Now this is the fun bit. With my trusty cam I can enjoy the same ride with the same buzz, and buzz myself whenever I wan't to by watching the footage again.
It's not just the ride my friends as you know, it's the package as a whole:
>The trail and how oneself rode it.
> The scenery. Because when you reach speeds on a downhill say of 30-40 milesperblurryhour, you know it's there and with the corner of your eye you have a glance now and then but never get to see it in all it's glory.
>And finally, the soundtrack. A couple of people have said to me, you should listen to music when you ride. Yes I get it but I don't want it. The way I move over the terrain and the sound of when stones ping out from under the tyres, how the wind blows through the trees and landing off drops and jumps, CLUNK. From start to finish an epic natural soundtrack unique to the individual.
Anyway should turn up in a week or to. Try to sort out if I can post them on the blog for all to enjoy. Can't wait for the weekend. Come on you fiends, ride your machines!!! no really. Dust it off, fill your lungs and expand your faces.
