Riding your bike in the middle of NYC streets is a very bad idea and I don't recommend it (unless you have to get shots like this)

This video was supposed to take two weeks to create. Thanks to the awesome qualities of the HD GoPro Hero, my obsession and help from the people below it took two and a half years. I think it was worth the wait but I'm probably the only one :)

The song is Death is the Road to Awe by Clint Mansell (please don't sue me, this is just a personal project)

The bike photographers were Jon Farnum, Jerry Nance and Gordon Cieplak. These guys graciously agreed to ride with me in some of the most dangerous situations a cyclist can get in without being too reckless. At any given time there were 1-3 Hero's on their bikes shooting me in the street.

The cityscapes were shot by myself and Brandon King (mostly Brandon) on the Circle Line. We used his Canon HV20. Also, Brandon introduced me to the Hero over 2 years ago. Thanks man!
