Ok, so I've floated this idea to a few friends, and it seems like the time is right.
I've posted a couple ride videos here now (exhibit A, B or C), but I'm challenging people to do something similar. Whether it be a handlebar-mounted rig like I'm using, the camera dangling around your neck, or somebody else taping you, I'd love to use it in a collaborative bike-ride mashup.
It doesn't even have to be a bike. Just something human powered (tricycle, big-wheel, running, whatever)
So here's the challenge: Get me some footage by Labor Day (september 7, 2009), let me know what name to credit you under, and we'll have a ride for the summer (geographically and temporally somewhat distant)
Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org (or links to clips from this summer on vimeo, blip.tv, youtube, etc.)
There is also now a Facebook Group for this.
And if you're on Twitter, it'd be nice if you'd post this link with the hashtag #collabbike
