I’m working on assignment in Cannes in the south of France this week. I was given the opportunity to ride around on one of the Yahoo! “purple pedals” bikes. These whizzy retro machines are equipped with a solar-powered GPS and webcam, and when they’re underway, they take a photo and relay their position once per minute. You can see the route I took, as well as some of the photos the bike took here: http://purplepedals.com/
Yes, I do this kind of thing for a living. Silly, huh?
I made a 9-minute HD video which chronicles my ride along the beach. Here it is.
