Just to let you know I'm still alive...

Hi all.
I feel bad that I keep getting new subscribers based on old work. Don't get me wrong, I definitely plan on shooting more rides when the spring comes and maybe one or two before that. But it seems like most of the rides people want to watch are ones that I've already shot and took a while to gain momentum. Currently the ride getting the most views was shot in fall of 2013. It's the Battle Road Trail, a very scenic ride in Lexington and Concord MA. That's getting about 1,000 hits a month as I write this. The Independence Trail up in Peabody MA is still getting over 500 hits a month and that remains my most watch virtual ride overall currently at around 13,000 total views. There's a few others that get around 200 hits a month, including some nice trails in central MA. But there's also plenty of ride videos with less than 100 hits.

Here's what I'd like to encourage: total hipsterhood. Find a video with hardly any views that you really enjoy and act like you discovered it by being totally intune with your surroundings (because in a way you are). Go ahead, create some bragging rights. Much appreciated .
Love,
