I want to ride my bicycle (part 2)

Barclays Cycle Hire is a public bicycle sharing scheme in London, United Kingdom. At launch there were 5,000 bicycles and 315 docking stations available in central London. I think it\’s a great idea and results in a lot more people cycling. 4 wheels bad, 2 wheels good.

I want to ride my bicycle (FBD Insurance bicycle race)

The FBD Insurance RÁS Cycle Race is an 8 Day International Cycle Race around Ireland. I took these pictures at the Galway leg of the race but found photographing them tougher than I expected- the riders were grouped and ‘gone in 60 seconds’ (or less). So I didn’t really have much time for trial and error, seeing what the best settings were, where to stand etc. I took a lot of photos and was happy with these ones.

I shot with a 55-300 standard lens and stood in a roundabout at the cresent of a hill, which was good for when they were coming up the hill and not racing as quickly as normal. Ideally, it’d be great if they were doing a few circuits and if I had a 70-200 f2.8 lens (someday).
