Cycling meets YouTube

Yesterday, I offered the idea to begin a grass roots campaign to take the allure of cycling to a broader audience. The method I suggested was through the emerging medium. I did some research on online video sites to learn how we can do what they do. How do we create something that others (non-cyclists) would watch?

Sites like Will Video for Food give insight and even step by step instructions on how to create a product, where to post it, and how to direct traffic to your creation.

Well, we have an early entry into the fray. The Nashville Cyclist has begun a video blog on YouTube starting today. His initial posts are fairly straight forward interviews. It’s a good start, we need to join him. The fall is promising some good weather and many year-end centuries, club races, and charity events are still in front of us.

Let’s start the campaign to get people to fall in love with their bikes again!

    I’m going to start videotaping people on their bikes. If they crash is it my fault?

    Na unless you are infront of them and they crash into you. Believe it or not, it actually happened on the biggest stage of the Tour de France a couple of years ago.
