The race is on

Bicycle racing can tend to be seasonal here, unless you embrace all sorts of bicycle racing. There is a type of race for just about any season. Big tires, skinny tires, fat tires, knobby tires, smooth tires. Or if you prefer the European name – tyres. Whatever your preference, it’s still a great show of athletics and endurance. I go to watch and  . . . .  practice.  I can always use the practice. The speed and action keeps you on your toes.  This race was set on the grounds of an extinct volcano. That means hills and curves and speed. They can reach 35 or more MPH down the straight after winding through the s-curves. It’s quite the fun, and I’ve ridden the route numerous times. I in no way can match their ability, but it is a fun ride. It will give you a great workout! I “altered” these images just for fun. Just to see the results. I tend toward the poster effect with the bright colors. As I said it is practice. So the next ones I post will be examples of panning – keeping the subject relatively clear, while the background goes into a blur.
