Bearbones 200 The video

Post by Dave Barter » Mon Oct 13, 2014 2:05 pm

OK, you know what to expect.

This video is NOT work friendly. I hope you understand that filming anything half decent during this event was a challenge in itself, which is why I didn't even bother with "half decent". Hopefully it does convey some of the pain and suffering that we went through.

I'm working on a write up as well as I'm so shagged out that I can't possibly do any proper work today.

I hope all my whining does not distract from what an amazing, challenging and life changing event this was for me. I owe Stu and you others a lot for the past six months.

Great video dave, comedy gold. :grin:
Was hoping you'd got a shot over Badmouth bay, or of the twonks in 4wD's who had driven uphill through the wood only to meet a fence.

Ace, liked that :grin:
Saw the link via Strava, which was flagged NSFW. Fair enough, I thought, I'll put it on mute and watch it at work anyway. Only got to 1:27 before I had to abort...

Really enjoyed watching that.
Looking at the route on Strava, it looked very unsavoury. Kudos all round :-bd

Hi Dave,

I have to say a big thanks for being my echo of frustration. It was good to ride with someone with a common passion for having a severe dislike towards the route at 4 in the morning and a stubbornness to carry on regardless. I'm glad you pushed on as I just didn't have the legs and felt I was holding you back in the end.

Congrats to being the first newbie back, absolutely well deserved especially when powering up them hills. Top job! :-bd

Great video, and I love the Undertones.
I echo what you say about events like this being life changing. They really are a true test of resolve and determination; you can dislike it at the time, but there is something that keeps pulling you back in for a bigger, faster, higher, harder ride. But I think that this years BB must be the hardest single day (is that right?) ride out there.

Please Stu, make it a bit easier next year. Dave has written a book on bike rides and there's some in Wales - maybe have a look and get some ideas?

Question at 4:15.
Answer: A rideable bike wash.

07:13 needs a Danny MacAskill move.

Good vid, enjoyed that one more than the last two.
And good effort! :-bd

Dave, the sentence depicting the first hike-a-bike section must be one of the best sentences ever written. Amazing.
