A Great Ride at Wakefield

So, I learned something really cool yesterday. If I open my cellphone, start the video recorder and stick the phone in one of the forward facing pouches on my backpack, it faces the trail for a perfect (well, almost perfect) video of my trail riding.

Take a look for yourself! Also, I'd love it if someone could edit these with some music, and crop out my hand movements at the beginning of each video. Because the bag covered the microphone, there is no wind noise, but there's a lot of heavy breathing...

The video was taken while I rode the north portion of the yellow trails at Wakefield park, in Fairfax County, VA. It's one of the best singletrack trails in the area for mountain biking.

Enjoy!

Looks like something out of the Blair Witch Project...

You're the second person who has said that. It makes sense... since that movie was filmed not far from here...

Let me assure you, though, that this forest is in the middle of an urban setting!

believe me...I am TOTALLY impressed with the fact that you have gotten into this biking thing. I was so inspired that I took my kids hiking today and after hiking 4 miles I realized that I like being lazy much better! Marco came home and wanted to know who I was and what happened to his wife!? (clearly, I dont hike regularly!)
Kudos to you for getting your butt in shape! And cool video too!--joanna
