Photography and cycling

Postby skyhawk » 25 Aug 2019, 11:27am

Does anyone here combine cycling with photography / videography

I always carry a camera

Lets see your images preferably not just gopros on a bike

In days of yore, I carted a Pentax MESuper about in a musette, perhaps with a lens or two, to enable the odd snap of cycling pals. Here are a few of those (from the 80s):

I fell out of the habit of taking a camera cycling with the club. Too busy racing about at full-pelt, man! But recently a camera found its way into my jersey pocket (a waterproof, shockproof and dustproof item) so I took a few more when out with the club. Here's a tiny selection of dozens and dozens:

Before moving to West Wales from NW England, I went on various rides about on routes I've done so many times over the decades. Here's a few of a ride around The Bowland Fells. I wish I'd though to do this earlier and got many more pictures of many more routes but .....

Now in West Wales, I go out with the ladywife, she upon her e-bike and me suffering on her back wheel. This represent two kinds of cycling enjoyment: one for the sadist and one for the masochist. :-)

Thanks! I used to cover events for the regional FFCT committee, so I had lots of opportunities. Shooting the kids' events in particular was very rewarding. (I should add that the entry bumph included a release form.) Nowadays I most use a point & shoot effort - easier to carry.
