And while we were waiting for the camera battery to recharge for the second time that day, I decided to test out the slow-mo video on my new phone. The actors wanted to take a couple test rides on the bike seat to get used to riding with a passenger before doing it on camera, so I pulled out my phone and put this together:
Stay tuned for the actual video. Once it's done being edited, we'll share it with the world!
Mark was super cool, and made a red bicycle seat to compliment the first red leather Companion Bike Seat. We're not offering the custom bike seats, but we're happy to pass you along to Mark if you're interested in getting one made for your bicycle!
This was the first CicLAvia event to be held in the San Fernando Valley and was a huge hit. CicLAvia hosts several events throughout the year, spreading them out all over LA county. CicLAvia aims to change people’s attitudes, behaviors and the public conversation regarding alternative transportation, health and wellness, public spaces and community engagement, and they were certainly successful at it today! What a great experience ... we'll definitely be back again for future CicLAvias.
Remember, ALWAYS wear a HELMET!
