Another just-for-fun time-lapse bike video.

It was a gorgeous late-Autumn day yesterday, and I had a handlebar mounted camera running as I rode a 5m/8km section of bike paths along the Mystic River, Alewife Brook, and Malden River in Massachusetts. (It's part of my favorite 17mi/27km local loop.)
If you have 3.6 minutes to kill, here's a scenic stretch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UOE1ASys2o (It's part of an experiment; using a handlebar-mounted camera to produce short, annotated, speeded-up (time-lapse), bikes-eye-view videos of local bike trails. The idea is to let riders preview a trail end-to-end, very quickly, to see if it's something they'd actually want to ride. For more info, see the Notes section of the Youtube video.)
