There's a lot of pavement riding whilst the road is empty.

Don't use the go pro one! It's awful! I've got the k edge one and its very well thought out. Not cheap though.

Unless you are 8 or so - why are you riding on the pavement ? Did I miss the bike path sign ?

Alot as in a tiny stretch between 2 roads, and a 200 meter stretch up the hill?

As you could see, i stopped at the top of it because i am asthmatic. Take your stupid comments somewhere else.
P.S - Cheers for the view.

Those are cycle path where the op shown riding on pavement or rather they are cycle tracks for the ignorant ones here.

The roads around your house look scary. Full of blind turns and corners.

Cheers for adding as looks like a good vid & I only seem to be able to find reviews by people on MTB's which are good as tend to be flying down manmade trails with trees/bushes flashing back so shows up the frame rate as copping but nice to see a roadie with the new camera.

Might add this to my birthday list!

A lot as in too much. And what has Asthma got to do with riding on the pavement ? I have asthmatic friends who don't do that.

I stopped at the top of the hill so i could use my inhaler. Clearly their asthma is a different severity.

If it was a footway and not a cycleway (which Ricky1980 suggests isn't the case anyway) then any length of riding on the pavement is illegal.

Then you need to get the council to put up some signs and markings.

I wasn't questioning why you stopped.

I just don't get videoing a ride, you mostly just see asphalt and grass verges. Each to his own though.

The quality of the image looks great. Personally I prefer just to hear the sound of the ride rather than the added music. Are you able to mount it on the top of the bars to give a clearer view?
