Getting a flat bicycle tire seems to happen all too often. When it does happen, you don’t need to bring your bike to a shop. You can do it yourself at a fraction of the cost. Here, I show you How To Fix A Bicycle Tire Inner Tube in my video.

Option 1, patch a hole puncture on the tube with Park Tool Patch Kit, and Option 2, replace the old tube with a new tube. I use the Crank Brothers Speedier Lever tool to remove the tube from the rim and reapply the tube back onto the rim.

Plus, as a bonus, let us take a short ride on the Monterey Coastal Recreation Trail to view the California sunset.

This is a 2-for-1 video for those who like to go bicycling, including a test of the Yakima Fork Chop accessory, and my hot pick of a bike path on the Erie Canal. The Fork Chop is a simple attachment for carrying a bicycle on your Yakima car rack. If you like multi-day bike rides, then the 350-mile long Erie Canal Bikeway is for you, and I give you a sampler of the Mohawk-Hudson section near Schenectady, New York.

Also, in this video, I take a closer look at the amazing Dam & Lock system on the Mohawk River, and I try a little quick fishing.

gopro hero 8 test review

Ever wonder how surfers, snowboarders or sky divers capture amazing close-up footage of their stunts? Well, they can’t carry a heavy DSLR camera while they are doing tricks. Enter the little camera, GoPro Hero 8 Black (boy, that’s a mouthful for a small device), that packs a punch. It is so small that it can be attached to a helmet or a chest harness.

In my video, I try out the cam while riding a bicycle, attaching it to the handlebars and then a selfie stick. I test out its features and HD video quality. The image stabilization is simply amazing, considering how much shaking is going on while I am cycling. Check out my video review!

Please note: I feature wildlife shots, such as birds, in the video which were not taken with the GoPro but rather with my Panasonic camcorder, which has a strong zoom lens.

I hope to do more gear review videos in the future. Let me know if you think I did a good job :)

What would you use the GoPro cam for?

The following gear I used in this video:
GoPro Hero8 Black
Smatree Selfie Telescoping Stick with Tripod
Smatree GoPro Base Adapter
Maxcam Tempered Glass Screen Protector
Sony RX100 20.2 MP Digital Camera w/ 1-inch sensor
Panasonic HC-V800

Are you planning to visit Yosemite National Park? I have been there several times, thanks to my Dad. And I share what to do in the beautiful park, even if you only have one day to spare. In this video, I bike around Yosemite Village and in the scenic majestic valley, giving you a sampler of what Yosemite has to offer. Enjoy!

New York City replaces car lanes on broadway for bike lanes and benches. Click here for more.




New York City is becoming more bike friendly with events like Summer Streets, three Saturdays in August when the streets are car-free for bikers, rollerbladers and walkers. The route follows Park Avenue, beginning from 72nd Street and ending all the way downtown at the Brooklyn Bridge. For bikers, it feels like a dream to see the city absent of cars.
