Also, the batteries usually last 20-30 minutes, so I have to check on why they don’t appear to have been fully charged. Hmmm…
Recorded with a GoPro HERO8 Black, and originally live streamed. Kudos to GoPro (for the camera and their app that streamed it so long) and Restream.io (which allowed me to stream to multiple places at once).
It always feels good to get out on the bicycle, even if the temperature is 90+ degrees. 🙂
Taken with a GoPro HERO8 Black using 15x Time Warp.
Music: “All Together” by More Like Georgia from the audiio music service.
The video was uploaded at 4K, which means I could also grab cool images like this. 🙂
Yes, he made dad feel old. (I used to “pull” him along on bicycle rides back in New Hampshire. No longer.)
Either way, here’s a quick couple minute version of the ride. (GoPro Time Lapse at 30x.)

I just returned from another bicycle ride (and a yummy Byers General Store meatball sub midway). As I was cleaning up the remains of my lunch, I received a storm warning for Strasburg.
Now, the adult thing to do would have been to wait it out. Instead I unpacked the GoPro, climbed on my bicycle, and started videotaping in case I got caught in dope storm. (I have been told that “dope” is the new “rad.”)
I got a little rain on me at the end, but, alas, nothing worthy of showing you the video. Here’s a snapshot of the south, though, as I stopped to guzzle some water…
From yesterday, here is a quick bicycle Time Warp video from our home in Strasburg to the Byers General Store:
Byers General Store has awesome food! 🙂
(And great people too…)
This is the second trip where I enjoyed a meatball sub as my halfway reward.
Hot day. Hovering around 90 degrees the whole time. Beautiful otherwise.
This was filmed using the GoPro HERO7 Black’s Time Warp feature at 15x.
The music is “My Baby Moved to Denver” by Lance Bakemeyer. Used by permission thanks to Storyblocks Audio.
Climb on your bicycles folks! The world is waiting and it’s a lot less boring than jogging. 🙂
Oh, and please be sure to check out our new site, GoPro Monster (https://gopro.monster).
A week+ ago, my body was tortured into better shape by camping six days with Bennett Boy Scout Troop 30, so I am trying to keep my exercise up so as not to lose it. On Monday I rode back-and-forth from the General Store in Byers…and today it was McDonald’s in Bennett. This is a 15x Time Warp video from my GoPro HERO7 Black.
Perfect day…except…the wind was horrible, especially on the way out. I had to downshift for even downhill grades. Ugh. 🙂
But, McDonald’s French Fries make up for almost anything. 🙂
Yesterday, our Lucky Dog bicycle pet bicycle trailer arrived, and although it was late by the time I got home and had dinner, I had to try it out.
You are rewarded, however, by being able to watch the Inaugural Chewie Bicycle Cam!:
Please zoom to 6 minutes in, because initially Chewie tried to climb out…so it isn’t until then I opened up the trailer so you can see him in all his glory and happiness. 🙂
I was very impressed about how easy the carrier was to assemble, how sturdy it is, and its features (e.g. it can also be used as a walker). It’s also inexpensive.
If you are interested in the trailer:

- Directly from Discount Ramps: https://www.discountramps.com/dog-trailer/p/PT-10201/
I’m a bit tuckered tonight…but I wanted to sneak this out before my day wraps up.
10x GoPro Time Warp bicycle ride from Byers to Strasburg, Colorado.
Happy Monday everybody!
Today (when it was greater than 95º when I left):
Beautiful day…and the ride wasn’t bad. Low humidity rules! 🙂
This was Tuesday’s ride in two parts (out to the Strasburg Convenience Store and back). The “back” is in the dark. It’s not 100% clear, but you can see a cool light that makes a rider safer by putting a green LED bicycle image in front on the road.
Now, the best video from my GoPro HERO7 Black (at this point) is the GoPro Time Warp Bicycle Ride. If you are someone thinking about moving our way, you’ll see most of downtown Strasburg at the equivalent of 50 MPH. 🙂
Again at 5x speed…see a ton of downtown in less than 10 minutes. It’s like zooming through streets at 50 MPH, but without the carnage. 🙂
Music from Bensound.
I’m on day two of a six day vacation…although “vacation” doesn’t seem to equal “slow down” for me. 🙂
A bit earlier this afternoon I came back from a bicycle ride to and from Bennett (okay, I’ll admit it, I went to McDonald’s!)…and on the way snapped these photos of my favorite spot during that ride (which, I assume, is in Bennett):
Continuing to where I had to make a sharp left to stay on Route 36, I really liked these clouds:Continue Reading
Although I should be able to do basic maintenance on my own bicycle, space and time constraints meant I wanted to find someone else to do it and a friend recommended Andrew at Bring the Bike Ltd. I am glad she did.
I am just back from an anniversary dinner and am looking forward to an afternoon bike ride on my freshly cleaned and tuned two-wheel transportation. Andrew did a bang-up job for a great price, and I know I’ll be a repeat customer. I am not sure of everything he does, but I do know it includes tuning and repairing! 🙂
And he’s a really nice guy on top of it!
So a “We Recommend” and 5 Bulls from Strasburg Rocks! for Bring the Bike Ltd.
A day or so ago I discovered that if you did a panoramic photo on iPhone and published it to Facebook, the iPhone Facebook app allowed you to do one of those 360 rotations of the image. Today, on my bicycle ride, I tried to do a full 360, but the iPhone seemed to stop about 270 degrees. I do not know how this Facebook post will show up elsewhere, but here goes. 🙂
If it doesn’t do anything for you here on Strasburg Rocks!, please try opening the Facebook entry on your smartphone…and while you are in Facebook…send me a friend request. 🙂
P.S. This was the original one that keyed me in on the interaction between iPhones and Facebook:
I felt like climbing on my bicycle…and I was going to have to cook for myself ’cause mom and munchkin were going to be gone for a bit…
And I like excuses to eat out…especially if I can reduce the diet-guilt factor through exercise. So…guess what is about 8 miles from where we live in Stradburg…
This was just as I came to the top of the worst incline on the way to Bennett:
On the way back I saw someone who was very curious about the strange being on two wheels:
When you can first see home.
Of course, late in the day as it was, the prettiest views are the other direction:
