Here’s the video of the Super Thou – riding 1,000km in less than 14 hours. Video by me, shot on a GoPro Hero 4 Black – edited on iMovie, music edited on Audacity, graphics and animation done in Photoshop. Music is an edit of Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer & Chris Thile – The Goat […]
I’ve had two long rides only one month apart. First, the North Island 1600 (1,600 kms in less than 24 hours) and now, the Super Thou (1,000km in 14 hours). Super Thou sounds easy, right? I worked out I needed a moving average of 71.5 kph which is 4.5km faster per hour than the NI1600. […]
