MTB – Video riding down the Roman Road

Just got access to a GoPro Hero 3 Camera, so I thought I`d take it down one of the routes that I do quite often. The ride is above Hawes/Burtersett on the Roman Road Bridleway. It starts off with a bit of the final climb and then goes onto riding back down the track towards the road from Burtersett.

Mounted to the Handlebars of my Mountain Bike.
