Commuting Videos

I’ve wanted to make a bike commuting video of my daily ride for almost as long as I’ve been riding, but I’ve never taken the time to rig up a good camcorder mount. Since it’s kind of a low priority, but fun hypothetical project to do at some point down the road I decided to hit up You Tube and see what other people had done in that regard. It turns out that there are quite a few daily bike commute videos out there (but none from Spokane yet). Here are three that I found for New York, San Francisco and Seattle.

New York

    Good music, crazy lane splitting action and an urban environment that is completely foreign to my commuting experience.
    <h3>San Francisco</h3>

    Not quite as crazy as New York (but still somewhat daunting at times) and quite a few actual bike lanes/markings.
    <h3>Seattle</h3>

    Pretty low key and much closer to my daily ride.
