howdy, thought you and your followers might dig a small vid i made out in oakland hills. more to come this summer. -cheers!
The Bay Area is one of the few places where one can quickly escape their urban surroundings and venture into some beautiful back country by bicycle. No need to strap a bike to a car, just walk out your door and hit the road. Before I started riding I didn't even realize many of these places existed so it's hard to describe it without really showing it.
So I wanted to capture it as well as the morning ritual that is coffee and a bite so I teamed up with local cyclist Manny Acosta to shoot this one morning. We planned to add more to this video but have decided to leave it be. Manny just got a new Rivendell and we're planning our next journey now so hopefully that'll come in a month or so. I'm thinking the next one will be the 'evening escape' and be a little more epic since we've got this experience under our belts now.
This was all shot with a Canon 5d MKii one morning and edited and colored in one evening. Really amazing what you can do with the camera and a copy of FCP.
Special thanks to Hyon Bae for serving as the truck driver and for lending us his apartment in Oakland.
