Touring videos for training
« on: January 01, 2005, 05:00:19 pm »
With indoor training, the scenery doesn't change.  What would make it more interesting would be videos taken from a touring bicycle (or something going that speed).
Does anyone know of any such?
If not, might be a niche Adventure Cycling could fill.
Thanks,
Dan and Linda

It goes back quite a ways, but I had some touring videotapes back in the 80's.  They were very good videos of cycling trips in Hawaii.  I believe my wife got them through some mail order catalog.  If I can find them, I'll post whatever information might be useful.

   Dan & Linda, you might be interested in the DVD that I made of my 2001-2002 round-the-world bicycle trip. It's actually 2 uncompressed DVD's that run for 110 minutes total. It includes a lot of video that I shot from a helmet-cam, as well as stationary video and stills that I shot of interesting sights. It's available through my website, www.oncearoundonabicycle.com, for $10 (which includes shipping in the U.S.).
   The helmet-cam video includes footage shot on the narrow road that hugs the cliff on the Amalfitano Coast of Italy, a heavily-trafficked road down into Athens, the coast road of Southern Turkey, the Giza Plateau, the Eyre Highway on Australia's Nullarbor Plain, the South Island of New Zealand, and the Desert Southwest. I'm sure there is a lot of other helmet-cam scenes; I just can't recall them at the moment.
