including a 100 mile race yesterday, beginning in Bushnell Park.

We have a similar event like this tomorrow. It's the "leave your car at home" day.

I don't ride much. My wife thinks it is dangerous because cars don't look out for cyclists.

Now that's a terrific shot for motion. All the helmets look quite similar.

I try my best to bike year round. I will have to find some winter tyres for my new bike soon.

Fab start of race shot Jack.. did I mention that I have a phobia about that particular style of bike helmet, they totally creep me out, I know weird right :)

Jack it looks like you are about to get that rundown felling.

It takes good strong legs (not to mention heart) to ride in a 100 mile race. Good for them!

William Kendall said...

Fine shot of the bike race start. Bike races are fun to watch, but they are difficult to see as they rush by in a moment and then are gone miles down the road.

That's quite a distance, Jack! Great shot!

Michelle said...

My husband would love to be in the middle of that race :)

Randy said...

Great shot of the start.

Bob Crowe said...

Nice shot. Bicycle races are hard to photograph. Too much motion in a small amount of space.

How fascinating that they all have the same hats. It makes them look like a swarm of insects about to bear down on us.

One hundred miles? My legs feel sore just thinking about it.
