    It was time to knock off the dust on the road bike and roll out a chilly 20 mile ride today. It was 6 days short of 3 months since my last road bike ride, and it felt great to be back in the saddle.

    I managed to get in a couple of road rides this past week, in nice weather and I agree, it feels great. As much as I like riding my gravel bike, hardtail and fat bike, I'm still a roadie at heart and it felt like coming home. I'll be getting out again tomorrow and next week looks good, so hopefully I'll get some decent mileage in.

    I hear you the road is where I live 100% for 40 years and it's just a great feeling to ride the pavement again. Was out today (Sunday) and the road bike will be getting the call more as long as the weather plays nice.

    I bought a handlebar mount camera but the damn thing makes every ride appear to be in slow motion so I stopped using it. When I'm dropping through a series of downhill chicanes where it says slow to 20 and I go around at 40 I don't want a video that looks like I'm diddling along.

    Do you use a video editing program to edit the videos? I have one now cost me %50 called Powerdirector16. So much better than the free program that came with Windows. So many more controls. You could edit them to look actual speed. I was hesitant to buy a better program but once I did, I was really really happy I did. So many controls over the videos.

    If you post vids on youtube or other places, well worth it.:cool:

    This thread caught my attention, but it's been a LOT longer than 6 days and 3 months for me I recently dusted off my road bike too, after a good long year of neglect (and probably much longer since I've been on this forum). Unfortunately it's still hardcore winter here in Canada, so I had to dust off the rollers too! I'll be ready when spring comes!

    Cheers!

    Seems its been a long time since the last time I was here. I'll look into this program as soon as I pay off my bills for the new bikes I have bought since then.
