Awesome day. Here is my perspective:



Good to chat to you on the day 'ezzy', both at the start and when I passed you 8)
My bike is heavier than your bike. :D

Excellent video N (what's your nick mean?).
Would love to know what camera and editing software you use.

This was the first time I've started in the 30+ group. Was surprised how many riders I still had to pass. Maybe they can have a 35+ group next year, and not let the slower groups jump the start, as I heard the 25 group did this year.

Thanks. nitramluap is just my name backwards - Paul Martin :) It started out years ago when Hotmail began (before MS got their hands on it) and I missed out being paulmartin@hotmail.com by a few hundred, so I just flipped my name. Most people don't see it, some do.

The camera is a GoPro Hero HD, mounted with some stick-on mounts on the body of the velomobile. They've not fallen off yet! I also have a suction cup mount which allows me to put it in various locations on the bike without ruining the bodywork. Editing is mostly done with Final Cut Pro X on my iMac.

I don't think adding an extra group will make much difference as there were plenty of people in the 30+ group who couldn't maintain that average, plus there were many blue riders riding at the very start - most of the people I passed early on in that video, including some children!

ah yes, the hangover from hotmail days. was a challenge to find a unique name, but quite necessary to avoid spammers.

thanks for vid info.

I heard some red riders got in amongst the front blue riders. Those reds took off with the reds in the 30+ lane, and triggered the blues to go....and there was no effective marshaling to deal with it apparently.

That would explain it. There were a few people pushing in (see 3:17 in the video for two of them) and many people were starting FROM the busway stations!

Haha! Well know you know! :lol:

Someone actually threatened me on this forum by 'outing' my true identity. I've never really hidden it so it didn't worry me... ;)

Great vid Paul. I relived the ride :D . You obviously put some work into it.

I was interested to see your shot of the engine room. Pedalling in your undies were you :lol:

Three huge cheers to all the volunteers, sponsors, support crew and vendors who made the event happen. Details of next year's event will be released in the coming weeks.
