Here's a video I made a couple of days ago. I ride this route or variations of it, a few times per week, on average. Just for fun and exercise. :)

This video is much better quality than the last one, and can be played at "4K" on youtube.

I used a GoPro Hero 2 camera, set to take images at 0.5 second intervals. Then I used ffmpeg to join the 6756 images into a 25 fps mp4 video.

I'm not sure I like the "music." Youtube's ad-free music selection is rather limited, but I might see if I can find something better.

This circuit begins and ends on Bell's Bridge, Glasgow.
It mostly follows National Cycle Route 7 from Bell's Bridge to Clydebank, where it meets the Forth and Clyde Canal. I then follow the canal to where it crosses the River Kelvin back in Glasgow, where I turn right and follow Kelvin Walkway to Kelvingrove Park. Exiting the park onto Kelvin Way, I head down Argyle Street, then take the pedestrian/cycle bridge over the Clydeside Expressway, round the front of the Armadillo Centre and back onto Bell's Bridge.

It's nice and flat.

Lycra shorts are the best for cycling. Alternatives only exist for lycra-phobics. :)

Hi Al!
 
What a fun filled video! Your video technique is very impressive, I wish that I had a 4K monitor for viewing! 
I really enjoyed your tour of the paths, you saved me about $5K in travel expenses.
 
My curiosity leads me to ask: how many kilometers to you you ride?

Thanks softeyes.

On average I reckon I cycle around 250km over 5 - 6 days per week in the summer, dropping to around 100km over 3 - 4 days per week in the winter.

I only took up cycling (as an adult) 2 - 3 years ago; I used to cycle regularly when I was a teenager, but had hardly been near a bicycle since. I thought at the time that it might just be a phase, but there's no sign of it ending any time soon. :)
