    My dad (inmate: Joe2131), my brother, and I ride about near Middlesburg, Va. Around 45 degrees with little wind and sunny, so it was a nice day to ride.

    Could be. I wasn't sure exactly where we were since I was just following and enjoying the ride.

    I am using one of those fancy GoPro HD cameras. The mount is an adhesive pad that came with the camera, which then slides and locks into place.

    Good eye there. Some neat roads all through Middleburg. Always looking for any dirt we can find in NoVA, even if it's hard pack.

    I went by Bull Run Mountain road this afternoon but decided against trying it given how poorly my tires deal with snow.

    Just getting back up my driveway and into the back yard was an adventure!

    That's unfortunate that you had to skip over those roads. They are pretty nice, and can be pretty fast. :ricky

    Yes, the camera was a GoPro HD camera, and I belive the model/version is the Hero, or something like that. The adhesive strip and mount that came with it is what kept it attached to the top of my helmet.
