Below are a few audio pieces I put together surrounding the Cycling for Sight 2009 ride.

The Genesis Story

This is the genesis story of the ride, featuring ride co-founders Dave, Johnathan and Andy. They talk adventure cycling, crazy ideas and the line between genius and insanity. Give a listen. Its about 10mins. long.

This is Why We Ride

The audio track from the “this is why we ride.” soundslides presentation. It features about a dozen CFS09 riders giving quick answers to tough questions.

Blind Stoker Slide Show

The night of ride day 3, I treated the CFS09 crew to something a little different. We’d had end-of-the-day slide shows, but this was something more fun. Listen in to the slide show of captured sounds from the day 3 ride, as it would have been experienced by one of our blind stokers.

Greetings to all the return viewers, as well as first timers. The link below will take you to a very special video unlike anything we’ve produced so far. Its a combination of photos and sounds that gets to the heart of why CFS is so very special.

Please come back to withdrake.com in the coming days as there are still videos that will be posted, and a recap story to be written.

Cycling for Sight- The Last Day

1 comment

Just the beginning. Come back tomorrow night for lots more multi-media from the ride.

Greetings again all. We gathered so much great multi-media material over the last couple days that its still being processed, chewed on, sorted and arrangted for your consuming pleasure. I plan on spending my day tomorrow finalizing some awesome features that will really bring the people behind the ride to life. Look for that tomorrow evening.

Until then, please enjoy some of the best shots from the final day of the ride. If you are a rider or family of one and your favorite photo isn’t up yet, check back tomorrow night- theres lots more to come.

Cycling for Sight- Pepperdine to UC Irvine

Today our car route took us a little away from our bikers, so the media crew decided to roll out something we’ve been thinking about all along. There are a few pictures below, but the highlight of the post tonight is a very special kind of slide show. Throw on some headphones and hit the play button to experience a condensed version of today’s ride just as one of our visually impaired riders would (minus the smells of course).

If you listen close, you’ll hear us start our day with a walk to the cafeteria through the sprinklers (some of us rode over), breakfast in Pepperdine’s cavernous dining hall, our SAG support car passing a few of the riders, the team passing LAX and the beach, arrival at the half way pit stop, filling the water containers, a chance encounter with a horse, the team arriving at and departing from the pit stop, riding through more urban sections of the route with features like Spanish radio, but stop overhangs, corner food stands and passing a few bikers as well. We finished out the ride past some beautiful stretches of beach and into UCI.

See if you can hear it all…

Get your Updates- Cycling for Sight!

Leave a reply

Beginning tomorrow, withdrake.com will be home to all the latest updates from the 2009 San Deigo Braille Institute “Cycling for Sight” Ride. Dozens of both sighted and vidualy impaired riders will be braving the byways between Santa Barbara and San Diego in a three day race for funds, awareness and community.

I’ll be documenting the whole ride from a SAG wagon, a ride support vehicle, as well as spending time getting to know the personalities behind the ride.

You can follow the ride on twitter as well. I’ll be tweeting from the road on both my account (@withdrake) and the Cycling for Sight Account @cyclingforsight. We’ll be using the hashtag #cfs09 if you want to join the twitterati.

Look forward to lots of photos, audio pieces, some videos, and great stories from the road.
