August 25, 2020-Testing my new CamPark 4K video camera with audio mic and a local ride with at least "less smoke" from the fires!

 On Tuesday August 25, 2020 it was another HOT (90F+) day with hazy sunshine but you could actually make the outline of Pikes Peak today were you couldn't see it all last weekend and on Monday!! I found a great price break on a last years model CamPark ACT74 4K Ultra HD video camera and we did this ride to test it out. Sadly my You Tube channel isn't up to 4K yet so I shot the vid in 1080p (30fps) setting, even more of a let down, my internet connection is SO SLOW, that I have to convert it to a lowly 360p so it will upload from my computer to make a You Tube video, RATS!! :(

The other thing that a nice upgrade is that it has a "remote microphone" instead of the tiny built in one in my Vivitar 786 HD video camera and at least some level of, STABLEIZATION setting which the old camera had NONE so it's at least a bit more LESS bouncy!! :) We headed down the Cascade St. Bike Lane over to the Colorado Ave. Bike Lane to America the Beautiful Park to pick up the Midland Trail heading west to Manitou Springs, CO. and Schyever Park to have our normal "brown bag picnic". After the lunch we decided to head back via Pikes Peak Ave. as they are still doing construction work at Ridge Rd. and the Trail, it has a VERY steep and slick gravel ramp up to the street as a detour and I had to PUSH the trikes up to the street from the trail!!! At 65 we are getting too old to be doing that!! It's typical here as the City thinks the only bikes that ride the trails are Mountain Bikes (MTB's) arrrugh!! :( 

18 miles RT, quite a roaster as we got off Pikes Peak Ave. on to the Pine St. trail heading north back to the storage unit to tuck away the trikes and do our 1 mile walk back to our 2nd. story apt. Still it was a enjoyable ride as always! :)
