Video: Riding with an Imaginary Friend in a Social Distancing Edit

May 20, 2020
by Matthew Davies  

During the first week of UK lock-down I decided to create this video to stay sane. Making videos and riding bikes are my favourite things to do so I have been keeping busy just that.

Social distancing ride with myself.

 Luckily they have the same knee protections. Imagine the nightmare of changing them like the jumper at every single shot. Congrats for the video, it must have been a lot of work!

 originally i wanted to use different bikes, clothing & kit but i could only film on cloudy days for continuity and wales decided to brighten up, so i had 3 days lined up to film under a cloudy sky. and that wouldn't have been enough, so i went for a jumper instead. i ended up filming it in 2 days because the 3rd day brought sunshine and i couldn't get the shots to match up with the light hitting the dust. thanks dude! really enjoyed making it

 Yeah, was beautiful. What was the music? It sounded like The Slackers but I've heard Hepcat (or something like that) sounds similar. I've seen The Slackers several times live and I've got a couple of their albums, but I didn't recognize this tune.
