Mike’s Day Out @ Ourimbah MTB Park

The First Time Getting Footage

Newbie On the GoPro 7

Hey everyone, this was my first video footage of my Mountain biking adventures. It was also the first time I got to use my GoPro 7, so the footage may not be as good as it could have been as I'm still learning how to use it all.

Location - Ourimbah MTB Park

On this day I ventured out to the Ourimbah State Forest - there you will find the home of the Ourimbah MTB Club. It's an awesome place to go riding, with trails that are good for all levels of skill.

Big Lesson in Fitness

OMG, my fitness levels are the first thing I noticed - I'm a smoker! so when you watch my vlogs it will be the thing you notice most (heavy breathing). This is probably the most important thing about doing this sport, it really relies on you alone, and you being fit.

With each ride, I do notice that my fitness is getting better, however I think it takes an average of 25 minutes to get the lungs in working condition - there's a lot of coughing at the start of each ride.

Anyway, below is the first footage of my Ourimbah ride, it's quite a long video, these days I am making them shorter.
