This would be something we can put on YouTube and our site. It would help attract interest from other riders as well as being a lot of fun to do. Chris has a vision of doing a video 1-2 mins long, filled with punchy cinematic shots. He would discuss what the 'story' would be but is thinking of the group meeting up in good weather at a good location. He is thinking of shots of the ride taken with his Sony A7111 with a few drone shots thrown in. He would also get us to gather some Go Pro footage and add short sound bites. Perhaps some chat about the club, what is good about us, why join etc....

The idea is to combine this with a ride at Winter Hill. Exact times tbc but I am looking for volunteers to support this for the benefit of the club and enjoy a few miles of good riding too. Meeting just down from the Rivington Barn Car Park, along the long road.
Address Top Barn Car Park Rivington
Rivington Lane, Bolton, BL6 7SB

OK Chaps, Ive spoken to Chris who is doing the filming. He reckons that he will need 2 hours to get 2 mins footage. He wants to avoid midday to maximise the quality of the film as it can be too bright at midday.

Can we have a vote for 9-11am or 2-4pm please?

Riders. 9-11am 2-4pm
