Video of Shark Week IV Ride Up and Down Mt. Washington

If you were there, here's your chance to relive the "fun." If you weren't, here's a little of what you missed. Janine was kind enough to put my GoPro to use as I tagged along behind her and Darrell. A couple of exciting moments on the way back down:

The Ascent:


The Descent:

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

Awesome video. Thanks for sharing. All I have is the memories of riding up, but a go pro is in the near future.

Thanks for posting! We were there but missed the ride due to working on tires. Wish we had made it!

In my defense.....it was REALLY REALLY REALLY FOGGY......!!!
Definitely not a good place to try out brand new tires and brakes that were REAL grippy.
All I could do was put them on smooth and gradual till there was nothin' left but "They're gonna grab and NOT lock up, or we're goin' over"......
What this video doesn't show was just how WET and downhill it was!
Did anybody mention the wind????
I grabbed a ton of brakes right there about twenty feet from the edge. I was hopin' for a slow slide/lock up over the edge.....! I'm not even kiddin'.......
And my baby Janine Hoskins did a heck of a job shooting with TWO cameras!!!

Had my heart thumping pretty good. I was wondering when you were going to hit that turn. We went up on Monday with better weather and pretty damn good visibility and it was still a little hairy.

Yeah, I was too! I just didn't want to clamp down too hard on those new Lyndall Racing Brakes I had just installed. They get real grippy and I was scared to death I was gonna lock up and then I would have slid us over the edge.
I would love to go back and ride it when we can see something. I was looking at post cards of the top and the huge radio towers just to the right as you go out the door of the post office/gift shop....HUGE towers........never saw 'em......!
