I have been blessed to ride with a number of the world’s most amazing bike riders. They tend to have very different takes on riding and what they are trying to accomplish. One thing they seem to have in common is a drive to test their resolve.
Here is a super fun edit I put together using Davinci Resolve. The animation took me a while to figure out, but after a while, I found ways to speed up the process. It was a lot of work, but I can see myself taking on a bigger project really soon.
