Cycle Video Day 10th of October 2011

Magnatom has recently announced an idea called Cycle Video Day.

The basic idea is to get as many Video Camera Cyclists to submit some footage that was taken on that day, showing what ever they wanted, them being cut up, left hooked or passing loads of standstill traffic as they go about their travels. The main idea is to show our numbers!

I know loads of people who know about my self or a few other guys that film their cycle journeys. But in reality there are loads, across the world I know of nearly 400 but there are hundreds more who I have yet to discover or who don’t post online.

I’m already having ideas about what I want to try to do. With plenty of Londoners using cameras, I would like to try to get a few of us together and all do a short ride with each other. It would be great to see each other from different perspectives.

Magnatom has asked for anyone to input in the general ideas pot. There is nothing set in stone about how this is going to work or where this is going to do. All that is set is the date. If you want to give some input, head over to his blog and comment on one of the Cycle Video Day posts.

  1. What a fantastic idea. I don’t have a video camera currently, but if I did……

    It’ll also be fascinating to see how different the traffic conditions are in the various locations. Have fun!

  2. I’m deffo in!

    Would it be good if we all shot around the same time? Like the eye of sauron, we see everywhere all at once. Perhaps, between 8 and 10. Great snapshot.

  3. I’d be up for this. Do you have a time & place in mind?
