:wub: Love the ride, love the music, love the scenery. But you sure need the right clothes!

Thanks! I had to pretty much add an extra layer from head to toe for the coldest rides this week.

@winterwheel +! on the video.  What is "yegwheel" ?  And what did you cross on that bridge? the fricking Atlantic Ocean!  Jesus that was long.  That poor woman had a long way to walk in that cold.  Did they ever find her body?  I can only imagine that the original settlers of Edmonton arrived in the spring, and by the time winter set in they were too well established to move.  When I live in Houston, I imagined the settlers arriving in the winter because the heat and humidity is killer without A/C.

yegwheel is the semi-formal name of our group that meets once or twice a week to do wheel stuff; the bridge is about 750 meters (half a mile) and crosses a river about 50 meters below the bridge.

Added: "YEG" is the airport code for Edmonton, we use it a lot as shorthand when we talk about the city, so yegwheel is a natural name for the group.

The view from the bridge with the tracks on top is interesting

You can take a trolley car up there and it stops in the middle of the bridge for photos and whatnot. Haven't worked out how to get the wheel up there. :efefa6edcf:

That's it! Man you're quick with those.:) They actually have a bunch of different ones from different eras, so not the same one each time.

They're Google Earth selects...geo-located atop the map. I looked through them earlier.

This looks like the end of the trolley line...and the get on/off point.

Has anyone tried to ride these things on train tracks? I just assumed that wasn't feasible, but maybe it's just doable but a rough ride.

Here's the backstory behind this amazing feat

My coldest morning commute coming in at -33C; if you dress right and trust your wheel, travelling in these conditions can be a really beautiful thing. It's interesting to see just how much frost builds up on the face mask in the three minutes it takes to get across the bridge.

This is much colder than normal, which would be about -12 for this time of day and day of the year.

Wow that’s cold! What dedication! Your selfie stick and Insta360 look frozen. :cry2:

Ha ha... that picture is awesome so I really, really, really hate to say this, but I've been using the GoPro for these runs. I've already broken one Insta and they apparently need a special battery to work in the cold. The Fusion has been performing like a champ though.

Awesome backstory! So many things could have gone wrong. Leaving the ER with just a CAM walker is unbelievable given the impact he sustained to his ankle.

I know. Very cool video and story, but I shake my head at what could have gone wrong. He must have incredible instincts to know how to judge this jump considering that there was no practice. He could have landed short, not twisted the body enough/too-much, etc.

Youth :facepalm:

How would you even practice that jump? Suppose a cushioned landing surface could be used initially. I believe he would have jumped again if his landing were injury free. The guy definitely has a career waiting for him in a Hollywood as a stuntman.

A little clip from my ride today and testing the gps speedometer on the insta360

 

Videos with speedometers in real time are my favorite bar none.  Thanks!

I could do this easily, but not for the same price.

Aww, dude. I tried to watch your vid, but couldn't. Something about your vid format not being recognized by my browser. Too bad. Looks like you had a lot of fun.
