My husband Mark Schulze is the inventor of the video helmet camera. I was there to photograph him wearing his gargantuan invention when he donned it and adeptly rode his mountain bike up and down beautiful singletrack under its encumbrance, in order to share the experience with viewers of our mountain-bike videos (we produced the world’s first mountain-bike titles (“The Great Mountain Biking Video” came first, released in 1988). People wonder why we didn’t patent the idea back then but we were more interested in riding our bikes, and videotaping the joy of riding bikes. We’re just glad we could see the fruition of video cameras that can now fit in the palm of your hand, or that you can clamp onto your helmet and then ride without even noticing it’s there.
