Video outreach on cyclocross

By Jason Cissell

Recently, we produced our first “outreach video,” to update local cyclocross riders about work to build the nation’s first permanent big-city cyclocross course at Eva Bandman Park. (Cyclocross is similar to cross-country running, but on bikes, and with attitude!)

We’ve been surprised how well-received this has been… the video has been viewed more than 700 times, it has found its way into a Courier-Journal sports blog, and been featured on a national cyclocross web site. More importantly, it has gotten the local ‘cross riders — like the folks who run the Red Zone youth program — excited and better-informed about the work that’s taking place.

Seeing how powerful video can be, we’re thinking about doing more of this in 2010… as time permits, of course. And we’ll do a better job on the audio next time! I had a fun time shooting it, and the editing process was easier than I expected, although I’m still a novice.

Any fun topics you’d like to see local parks officials discussing in a short video?
