Helmet-cam commute

Most helmet-cam videos are dull as dishwater, even ones on super-exciting singletrack or doing Freeride ramp jumps. But the one below by ‘Shabboleth’ is a lot of fun.

It’s an entrant into a documentary shorts competition run by Channel 4 of the UK. ‘Shabboleth’ takes us on his daily cycle commute in rural Cornwall, from Truro to Falmouth.

Parts of his route are on busy roads and he talks us through the close shaves he has with HGVs and speeding cars. But he also meanders along plenty of country lanes, all the while entertaining with his comments. The audio is surprisingly good for a helmet-cam.
