Part of this ride overlaps the path taken in the second episode of TV Cycle. A big difference is that the second episode was shot in the winter, while this one is from the summer.

Bend Old Mill District Bicycle Ride

Take a ride with host Brock Frazier on a windy and cloudy day in Bend, Oregon on a Univega Range Rover ES bicycle along the Deschutes River. The ride starts away from the Old Mill District, goes through that area, and then ends back where it started. The Univega doesn’t have a kick stand, which was really odd in terms of starting and ending the ride.

The Old Mill District reminded me of a mall I recently went to in the San Francisco Bay Area.

That “swarming” sound you hear on the ride is the knobby tires on the bike. The beeping towards the end was a timer suggesting the ride was over. The ride continued on, however, and this episode is the longest to date at slightly over 17 minutes in length.

TV Cycle web site goes crazy!

If you happened to visit this web site sometime about June 2nd, you might have noticed an alarming amount of sound coming from the home page. Here’s what it looked like on one of my systems:

YouTube error with TubePress plugin for WordPress at TVCycle.com

That’s the sound of all ten episodes of TV Cycle present on that page trying to play at once! What happened was, without any changes on my end, YouTube started automatically playing all of the videos present, even though the software this web site uses (TubePress for WordPress) had clearly specified not to autoplay. I did apply a quick change to temporarily fix the problem, and since, YouTube has fixed the problem.

YouTube hosts every video of TV Cycle, and this saves me a TON of bandwidth. So, while this surprise problem with the show web site was caused unexpectedly by YouTube, don’t expect any video hosting changes anytime soon. I’m thankful to live in an era of cheap digital recording, editing, and yes, cheap web video hosting.
