INSTRUCTIONS: Do something that you've done more times than you can count, but do it a way that you've never heard of.

I ride my bike everywhere I go (when I'm not working). I have ridden my bike more times than I can count.

I draw. I draw a lot. I used to be an artist. I have drawn more pictures than I can count.

I have never drawn a picture while riding a bike. In fact I've never heard of that ever being done.

Sorry for the poor audio quality. Who knew riding a bike with a camera strapped to your head would make so much wind hit the mic?

I know it's not very good, but my full attention wasn't on the drawing. It's good enough. Good enough that I'm not embarrassed.

The sound gets loud and annoying most of this entire video. Sorry. I didn't take the time to squish all of those spikes. Just turn down your volume if you get too annoyed.

Very cool. I am impressed with both your biking and drawing prowess.

(That's better than I draw 98% of the time when I'm sitting still. The other 2% is chance and miracles.)
That's also better than I bike 98% of the time. I'm a balance-failure.

p.s. - i am thoroughly amused that your drawing came out looking like you drew a red version of my bike :3
24" front wheels ftw.

The wind noise just adds to the suspense. I couldn't watch the whole thing because it made me too worried that you would be run over by a truck. I'm impressed and still a little alarmed.

The head-cam thing was a great idea.

I'm glad the wind noise adds and doesn't distract.

If you were worried about my safety, then I'm glad you didn't watch the whole thing, as I came real close to getting hit by a bus.

And I'm very happy with the head cam as well. I have big plans for that head cam (more bike tasking!). The base of the head cam is my Interrex helmet that SSI made me. I just made a couple adjustments to it and voilà!

Yay bike tasking! I hope you have a great time and continue not to get hit by buses.

Man, I wish I'd learned to ride no-hands that well.
And that I had such amazing luck with traffic lights!
