On Battery Street
It was a rare 40 F day in January and I wanted to ride. I stuck to cruising quiet neighborhoods and a bit on a busy artery—anything to avoid the icy waterfront path. I experimented filming with my camera perched atop a flexible tripod that was secured around the handlebars. While it's certainly safer than hand-holding the camera, there is some jumpiness and clattering in the footage (due to the cement sections). The squealing brakes couldn't be helped; Battery Street pathway is a steep one. It was pretty windy too as you can tell from the noisy video. It sounds like I'm just another mumbling fool on a bike!
