GN Travel Vlog: Mountain Biking in Auburn, CA (Culvert, Confluence)



Took 8 hours off on Saturday to get some biking in. This is a video that is completely unrelated to anything we do, other than a brief discussion of latency as it applies to bikes. This is a first for us, and we may or may not do these occasionally as we continue traveling. Given how much travel there has been this year, we figured we might as well throw together a vlog-style video. Just to be clear: I paid for this portion of the trip. For years now, since probably ~2011/12, I've tacked-on biking trips at the end of long business trips. This year, I haven't gotten a chance to do that since AMD, NVIDIA, EVGA, and CES were all so tightly packed together. This has been the first chance so far! ^SB

Might spin off another channel at some point for more vlog-style stuff. Let us know what you think.

Took 8 hours off on Saturday to get some biking in, after working a brief 5 in the morning and 6 after the biking.

Might spin off another channel at some point for more vlog-style stuff. Let us know what you think. We are not trying to do a lot of these. Should be pretty rare.

Oh sweet! Didn't know that you ride!

That has probably the #1 thing that has kept me in school. In my last semester for B.S. Computer Engineering.

Author Jolinator ( ago)
160mm travel pfft steve i ride that trail on my pink hybrid with 32s haha

Author Food winning numnum ( ago)
nice vid imo

Author Dumb Dead1 ( ago)
Damn what game is that???, the graphics are so realistic.

Author JonnyP Good ( ago)
made it to the river!

Author Charles Van Noland ( ago)
I live in Foresthill, where that bridge goes into the mountains.

Author QuackAttack ( ago)
I knew you were buff for a reason, lugging that bike around everywhere.

Author Hairry Wolf ( ago)
love it Steve keep it up

Author Chris Bowe ( ago)
In my humble opinion, it would be nice to see more of these on occasion - maybe monthly - on this same channel. It's nice to see you guys like this; see more sides of you all than just the more professional personas you deliver in your regular content :)

That said, I understand that ultimately it's your guys' channel, so it's your guys' call.

Author sneakeyboard ( ago)
This video is biased....that's clearly an [insert favorite brand here] bike. Poor competitor. You definitely gotta do this more often. Personal time is important and part of a healthy life diet.

Author KW0311 USMC ( ago)
If you ever are up that way again check out mammoth bar or Forrest hill both are really close to where you filmed this. I ride my dirt bike up there but they also have really good mountain bike trails. Awesome single track goodness!

Author Brian Douglas ( ago)
I know exactly where you are. I use to live in Sacramento. great place to live . thanks for being back some good memories for me 🤣

Author Joshua Gray Mitchell ( ago)
I'm a fan of a 2nd channel

Author Zag Zagzag ( ago)
squirel!!!

Author Dennis Greencorn ( ago)
not sure if it's really as scary as it looks or your really going as fast as it seems but wow, that looks cool...

Author blakegriplingph ( ago)
What system are you running this game on? I see you cranked up TressFX to maximum lol.

Author Francis Burns ( ago)
Bro you should take more breaks more often, I Love your content and wouldnt mind seeing them a few days late!

Author Charming_Prism ( ago)
Cool vid but if you could do a helmet cam instead of chest cam or whatever that would be awesome. Helmet cam gets much better angles.

Author iosubb ( ago)
Steve, you fucking pussy! I do such trails on my hardtail and without letting oil boil. :D

Author bean stalker ( ago)
Not a 29er fan as well, but the vid was nice though. Lookin forward to that 2nd channel.

Author Honey Force ( ago)
Liked it. I'd watch more. Thanks for posting Steve, enjoyed seeing the R&R

Author Bojan Blazevic ( ago)
Why second channel? just put the vids here

Author Twilight Princess ( ago)
This was great! I don't know what you'd think but you could try to mount a zhiyun crane 3-axis gimble to get some really stable footage. Anyways these videos are great to watch! Glad you have some time to enjoy!

Author Angel ( ago)
First there was Gamers Nexus. Hopefully we'll get Bikers Nexus. Maybe then, Cats Nexus? And we can only dream of Hair care Nexus.

Author Smack Chop ( ago)
Nice to get away once in awhile, good to recollect yourself.

Author Paddydapro ( ago)
you should put a frametime and fps graph on this game next time also the not benchmark footage watermark was missing :/

Author Shahnewaz Ahmed ( ago)
This! We need more of this adventure style videos!
Bikers Nexus or RIOT!

Author TheKopocko ( ago)
This game looks pretty good. Can you bench and compare how it runs on rx 480 and gtx 1060?

Author Dylan Lanphear ( ago)
Fuck, dude. This makes me like the channel 100 times more. Post a bike check video when you get home

Author Ivan Bertic ( ago)
Yes! Second channel pls.

Author Lazarus The adventurer ( ago)

Hit me up if you are ever in San Diego and want to ride. I'll put you in touch with the best trails I know of.

Author Knezicdex ( ago)
Cool game, is it in beta?
JJ. Nice riding Steve, i'd shit myself riding some of those segments.

Author Dmatic89 ( ago)
Super Sick!!!

Author Dave Bonner ( ago)
Bit of movie trivia... That high bridge you show several times is the one the main character drives the sports car off of in the first of the XXX movies - Sacramento viewer Also, great info on the Ryzen front in recent days!

Author disco__ ( ago)
"watch me hit this sweet jump"

Author disco__ ( ago)
>didnt even show benches for suspension

I bet this path was 1080p

Author Sean White ( ago)
This isn't a shitty video. I think it's very interesting to see what tech guys do in there down time. Other than play video games.

Author Dustin Rose ( ago)
That was a pretty cool, I would be interested in see more of this for sure

Author Reuben Horner ( ago)
A vlog so that he has an excuse to get all those swear words out

Author Adam Rose ( ago)
Great vlog love the scenery would love to see more of it.

Author ya blew it ( ago)
Awesome Steve. I did something similar in New Zealand recently. It was fantastic. An amazing ride over the course of 8 days around glacial lakes and dams.

Author setitfree78 ( ago)

Author joe hill ( ago)

Author TotoHurteau ( ago)

Author vivifyer ( ago)

Author Rosen Dimitrov ( ago)
You've just inspired me to go to the work with bike today :)

Author Micina Master ( ago)
Thanks for all your hard work!

Author jangelelcangry ( ago)
this looks a lot like the part of the GTA V benchmark where the Hydra fly by under the bridge. :D
GTA V VR mod confirmed!

Author Umbles ( ago)
So glad the riding seasons is upon us again. Now I can cull this urge after watching this lol

Author Zachary Davis ( ago)
Great video makes me want to go hiking again.

Author Tahsin Faiyaz ( ago)
WOW!

Author kruxypoo ( ago)
I grew up in that canyon, haven't been home in years, it was funny to see the name pop up. If you had gone three miles up the road you could have knocked visiting Cool California off your list. Glad you got to enjoy the river!

Author Yuck Foutube ( ago)
HA i knew you were cool but mountain biking as well! Me too Steve, me too!

Author JBG ( ago)
Someone should create a Steve Burke soundboard from this, including such memorable phrases as "If it's easy, I'll hit it" , "They saw me and knew I needed a special bike" and my personal favourite "SQUIRREL!!"

Author Sam Lane ( ago)
Nice Vlog, that was some great footage, as someone whos just started out its really useful to watch how larger channels work together all theyre footage. Great job!!

Author Du G ( ago)
Good stuff my dudes, it's refreshing/enjoyable to see behind the scenes once in a while. You guys should do this more often. I really hope your channels grows more, you guys definitely put in a lot of effort from what I have seen.

Author MrTinyThumb ( ago)
more of this please. man now i want to buy a bike.

Author James Brouillette ( ago)
More videos like this !~

Author WhoeverThatGuyIs ( ago)
Cornrows would definitely improve your thermals.

Author Ed Michael Rabaino ( ago)
The Tessellation and use of PhysX. Quad 1080Ti's are amazing! Plus those facial animations are far better than ME:A. 10/10 video though man!

Author Isaac ( ago)
These guys work seriously hard.

Author AspLode ( ago)
I like the graphics in this game, it's pretty nice the way it handles vegetation and bike jumping physics. I'm severely disappointed that the path wasn't procedurally generated, however.

Author HazzM ( ago)
"Squirrel" , lol.
Looked like a lot of fun, good call on the full face helmet it's way safer

Author hootis8 ( ago)
HAHA just watched a video of trail peak on the same trail right before this. Andd the same bike.

Author Mutantes Racing Team Downhill ( ago)
TI and MTB are my life :)

Author AJ Good ( ago)
Beautiful scenery, for sure!

As someone who's very pro-behind-the-scenes, I'm all for videos like this and the few other off the cuff videos I've seen from you guys before.

Author Raijinn ( ago)
dude fuck that bridge, scary as fuck

Author eTheBlack ( ago)
This runs on 1080Ti SLI?

Author combat842590 ( ago)

Awesome. I do the same thing with my dirt bike every month. Really helps relieve stress.

Author Tuchulu ( ago)
I really enjoyed this video. Thank you.

Author Melvin Hans ( ago)
I enjoyed this style video :0 only suggestions would be maybe a helmet cam vs chest.

Author Tuchulu ( ago)
This, kids, is what we call "outside"

Author I-BLANDON-I ( ago)
That glorious mane, bet he uses that Vo5 shampoo.

Author halistine jenkins ( ago)
you forgot to film the bol break...

Author F2F Tech ( ago)
I just got into MTB riding. I grabbed a 2017 Specialized Pitch 650B. It's entry level, but it's been fun thus far. Plus it's great exercise .

Author Adnan Ahmed ( ago)
Steve don't go into the light!

Author TheQuikMix ( ago)
Right on, Auburn is in my neck of the woods. Lots of fun stuff to do.
