Travis is new to the GoPro and was so excited to record his ride the battery died on the West Shore about one hour into his 6.75-hour day.

He was the 237th finisher of the 160km ride, proving to himself that riding 6.5 hours takes about 6.5 hours. Ten minutes were spent at the aid stations. Congratulations Travis.
