  • Why Ride? an attempt to inspire

    This is my new video, its called 'why ride?', it basically talks about why we unicyclists do what we do, i hope this will inspire people to ride more often etc. I hope you all enoy the video, i know the riding isnt the best but it is the meaning of the video that is important. Enjoy .

    Aweeesssoome!


    One thing I was expecting though was after you showed the two bails of you trying to do the 60cm hop, and then the bit of commentary about not giving up or something, I thought it may have been good to have the clip of you achieving it directly after that... other than that it was very kool.

      Just wondering, did you get the inspiration for this from the "another perspective" video?

        Haha thanks, yeah i thought that aswell, there is a clip in there later on where i complete it though. Thanks a lot glad you liked it

        And yeah the 'another perspective' video gave me the idea, i decided to make one like it because i liked that video so much so credit to the guys who made that video aswell

          You should post it as a video response for it (if the other one was on youtube, I can't remember...)

              I think it would have been okay if you just used the other video as inspiration, but you copied what the guy said word for word.

                It wasnt all word for word, and the only reason i did it is because what he said can be applied to our sport as much as theirs. Also i added in different words and another paragraph plus quotes etc.

                  But his applies to everything that we do. I think he even says that we all do the same thing.


                  We pretty much do the same thing as bmxers, and skaters, just on something different.

                    Yea that was a bit to scandalous. You bit that guys words. You gotta look at it like poetry, you cant just steal what other people write.

                      in the long run though a nice video. Not the most technical riding but it will still inspire others to ride. Some credit should be mentioned to the original writer of some of the parts. I sitll enjoyed it. Maybe someone could post a link to the original?

                        I like videos with a plot or some kind of aim.
                        I do not like when people copy just like that, without giving credit [in the "product"].

                        Your "reason" and the fact that you added/changed it slightly doesn't justify this behavior. In my opinion.

                        Overall a nice video though. I'm sure you can do something as good with your own words.

                          I didn't like it sorry.
                          Pretty much exactly what he said.
                          Another perspective inspired me more.

                            I enjoyed the BMX one more. Really though, some of that stuff seems a little out of context when applied to unicycling. Not too many people have been unicycling since they were a little child. Most people (non unicyclists) don't see just riding around as simple as we might.

                            Also, a lot of it was way too verbatim of what the BMX guy said. Got to find your own voice.
