Honor Ride 2015 { Cycling Photography }

So today we woke up early for the Honor Ride that the hubby was doing. I have been wanting to do more sport photography since I enjoy documenting and story telling, and I had been trying to shoot one of his events for like… over a year?! Some how it always ended up being that I couldn’t go, or forgot the camera, or something or other. But not today!

I had lots of fun shooting and I hope I get to do more of it. Maybe next time I will bring out the “big camera”. All I had today was my Fuji x-T1, which I might admit did fabulously for this being sports.

The sun wasn’t quite up when we arrived…

Little Lue was pretty excited about the whole thing :)

I think this is possibly my favorite image…

Once the ride was about to start, we set ourselves up for some photos!

It was a great ride to see, a huge crowd of riders!

I was worried I would miss the hubs in the crowd, but I didn’t! Even caught our friends, Mike and Betsy!

So after all the riders were gone, Little Lue was ready for her turn.

It seems that our lone extra rider caught the eye of the event managers, and they decided she could have her own number… and medal!

How’s that for awesome!

Alright! Then it was time to WAIT! This was a 60mile ride, which meant I had a couple of hours ahead of me to wait for their return. We decided to get coffee and milk at a near by shop, Banyan Coffee & Tea, which so happened to be next to Growing Up! I had never been to either place, but I totally loved the ambience and Growing Up had this awesome kids play area and a giant stash of baby carriers and cloth diapers. Swoon!

Alright, so after that pit stop, we headed back for the finish!

Princess P could barely handle the anticipation haha
