How to livestreeam your adventure rides onto youtube and facebook!

Who uses cameras to record their rides? What camera are you using? Have you ever tried livestreaming your adventure?

I see an app called facebook live, if you have a cell phone holder that allows you to point the camera towards the front, and also needs to be a little high up to see. Or else a mirror mount cell phone holder. Finally you can use a GoPro or other Action Camera.

I will post more info about my $50 action cam and live streaming in a bit.

Livestreaming is uninteresting to me, and frankly I consider it a narcissistic thing to do.

"How rare that we can point ourselves inevitably west and go, go, go. Run out the highway and the hills. Slide our fingertips over the creases and the valleys of the impossibility that is America. You cant grasp its vastness from a plane. Its diversity from a map. You have to put your feet on the ground. Your hands in the dirt." - Zach Bowman

I enjoy watching other people going on adventure rides on youtube. It's nice for people that are at home on the computer to be able to watch.

Also if I go down; people will know where I am if I get in an accident if I am livestreaming. This can also help with insurance or just finding someone that hits you in a hit and run accident.

Just having a camera mounted on your ride and highly visible might get people to pay a little more attention as well. Less likely to pull out in front of you or turn a left in front of you without yielding, if they see the cam

I know how to do it I just have to test it; you can do it with any adventure camera that has wifi capability, and using an android phone with hot spot capability.
