    Nice to see a bicyclist actually stop at a few stop signs.

    I kept expecting to see a car door taking him out.

    It wouldn’t have been the music I’d have thought of for Eureka but it seemed to suit the video. I found it interesting how grimy the city looks when you drop your perspective a few feet and then ride through its burbs and industrial areas.

    anybody else notice the tall ships?

    Ghost town but not for the cars. No rain and hardly a soul outside, wow.

    “Nice to see a bicyclist actually stop at a few stop signs.”

    Yeah, ’cause bicycles pose such a threat. Now, if we could only get drivers to stop at signs.

    Betcha he pays nearly $1,500 a month rent for that little yellow house at the end of the film.

    Maybe 1500 for the bike and the camera. Geez, can’t we just like something for the sake of creativity. Good editing and great song

    Yeah, I actually had one going the wrong way in a bike lane, against a red light at Harris and F St. run into my PU and curse me out for being in his way.

    Sorry for the negative comment, I also appreciate the flick and it’s creativity, just can’t take the attitude of some people who will defend their own ilk even when they are way off base.

    Great song and editing. The town does look different from that angle.

    I enjoyed seeing the corporate logo placement in this film. I now have a sudden urge to shop at Target, move my family across the state via United Van Lines, drink a Pepsi, and get me a quad-pack of Crest Toothpaste and a polish dog with sauerkraut at Costco.

    “Nice to see a bicyclist actually stop at a few stop signs.” If you rode a bike, and if you learned why engineers install stop signs, you would discover that signs are not installed because vehicles travel 6 to 10 MPH and the driver is able to hear & see everything. Stop signs are installed because vehicles travel at least 25+ MPH, are virtually sound proof, likely have a stereo playing, and have numerous blind spots. For more information, hang out near a stop sign (but not poised at the crosswalk) and observe how many cars actually come to a COMPLETE stop (especially including police cars). But bicyclist are fun to criticize from the comfort of my Humvee soooo, yeah! Nice to see a bicyclist actually stop at a few stop signs!!!!

    Me too, Mike. Videos like this should be linked on every web site that aims to attract visitors or businesses.

    I’m the creator of the original video. Thank you all for the positive feedback.

    We love Eureka and feel blessed to live in such a beautiful area with so many great outdoor activities.

    Here’s another recent cycling video

    Yours truly noticed the shadow suspiciously resembled Heraldo.

    The music doesn’t fit the video or the town, imo. I was going to comment that I like Roger Whittaker’s version of that song (Dirty Old Town) better, but I don’t think that works well with the video, either.

    But I went looking for a copy of Whittaker’s version since I hadn’t heard it in some time, anyway. I found this youtube video and, lo and behold, it’s a photo montage of some town not unlike Eureka, at least as I see it. Love the song but I think even Whittaker’s version doesn’t fit in the video it accompanies:

    See what you think. Isn’t that town kinda like Old Town? Well… kinda?

    Was it the cap that gave it away?

  22. March 25, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    Wow. Didn’t know it would embed like that. I just included the link.
