    First day of spring, 2016 - South-East England

    Roll out the red carpet.

    The GoPro gets its maiden outing.

    Buckle up - it's a roller coaster...

    It looks like you were going at a fair lick, Slap!

    Is the town, Alton? I see the Ivy House pub there.

    Downhill with a tailwind for the most part there - I did that on purpose.

    Spandex actually. And I find it accentuates the buttock quite favourably.

    At the end, in the list of victuals and beverages, you left out the bottle of lao kau that you picked up at the BP servo.

    The vid was mostly about 30 or so miles from my front door. I cycled over 100 miles that day - 70 of them were into the teeth of a very strong headwind. Horrible.

    I'm certain that the simplistic approach to direction is the way forward. Just a few more incidentals in each video should silence the naysayers and the strawberry breezer drinking namby-pambys of this world.

    Forgot to mention that the bloke serving in the BP station asked me which pump number I was. I had a fucking cycling helmet on.

    Gotta love the attentive staff at these places.

    That would liven things up a bit. Violence is always a crowd pleaser. I shall start with old grannies and work my way up to fully operational adults.

    What about filming some uphill moments where we can hear you cursing and swearing.

    Some nice pot hole dodging there, especially on Butts Road

    nice

    if you want to get a bit artsy you could overlay some speed gauges and GPS data with dashmaster

    Five apps to get more from your GoPro camera - TechRepublic

    I guess you could get the GPS data from your phone - somebody has probably already sorted an interface to have a google maps overlay also

    Stay tuned. I'll give Bar hatch lane a blast. It's a fucking wall.

    Nice one, Balders. Yes, you can also overlay heart rate and power, just for the extra geek factor.
