OK here is a video from 9/8. Some people like them, others find them equivalent to watching paint dry. BUT, they do give you the best feel for what the riding is like, even though the camera has a tendency to straighten out the curves, my average speed was about 55 km/hr (34 mph)

This was my first attempt at helmet mounted vids, I got a lot of wind noise, which is annoying, but music is too IMHO, so if you just barely turn the sound on, you do get a little feel for the ride, just with a noisy helmet and no ear plugs.

If you have the speed, watch in HD too, This is heading up the north ramp of Col de la Madeleine
