This morning I was up at 5 a.m. getting cameras ready. 2 Go Pros and one 7D with a 200mm lens. I knew the Pan Mass Challenge cyclists would be coming through early in the day (between 6 and 6:30). I always enjoy photographing cyclists, and the PMC supports a great cause. So yeah, get up super early!
The first riders rolled through at 6:10 a.m. Pretty good! What was really cool was the large pack of riders just a few minutes behind the front runners. And then the steady stream of riders for over an hour! Talk about a lot of bikes on the road.
The riders were glad to see our little cheering section on Manchaug Pond. A cow bell, clapping, bike bells ringing….. Even while it was raining on riders and fans alike! A fun morning to be sure!
Now I’ve got hundreds of frames to sort through, 2 Go Pros worth of video to check out, and I should be packing to get ready to leave tomorrow. Of course, I’ll work on the images first, that’s how I am! You’ll probably see a quick video post a little later in the day, so check back in!
