Yesterday while wandering the web I was stopped dead in my tracks. I had stumbled upon a video that captured the untimely beauty of the early spring riding in Vermont. Not an easy task given the post apocalyptic appearance of our pre-foliage month. But, I think you’ll agree this montage captures the essence of early April pedaling.
Allow me to introduce Henry Miles, a youngster with a sharp eye and mind for editing. I’ll let Henry take it from here.
MTB â€“ Hey Henry, Howâ€™s it hanging man?
Henry â€“ Not too bad. Waiting for summer.
MTB â€“ How old are you anyway? Vermonter born and raised?
Henry â€“ I am 18 years of age. Vermonter from the start.
MTB â€“ How did you get into filming? How did you learn those skills? School?
Henry â€“ I guess I got into filming from riding. I wanted to try out the artsy side of the sport. The skills came pretty naturally. After some trial and error of courseâ€¦
MTB â€“ About your vid, can you tell us where that is?
Henry â€“ The trails in my friends back yard in Dorset.
MTB â€“ Looks a bit like a home grown trail eh?
Henry â€“ You betchya. Itâ€™s the way to go.
MTB â€“ Who’s your buddy there? He rides with some authority….
Henry â€“ Matt Lareau. Good friend and super fun to film with.
MTB â€“ What cam’ equipment are you running?
Henry â€“ At the moment Iâ€™m filming with a Canon T2i with a few different lenses. Looking to upgrade for the summer however.
MTB â€“ So you live in Manchester, is there good trails near by?
Henry â€“ Not exactly. We have a new MTB club that is getting things going, which is sweet.
MTB â€“ Favorite place to ride?
Henry â€“ Iâ€™d have to say Crested Butte, CO.
MTB â€“ What/who inspires you?
Henry â€“ Aaron Larocqueâ€™s videos always get me real stoked.
MTB â€“ What can we expect to see from you next?
Henry â€“ A variety of stuff. Iâ€™m hoping to get into the dirt jump scene as well this summer.
MTB â€“ Anyone you would like to thank?
Henry â€“ Everyone who hikes their bike for me. Thanks guys.
MTB â€“ Thanks Henry
