Wow! Actually, genuinely surprised by how well this is doing.

There are soooo many bike shots in the world that I really didn't know if this one would stand out. Glad so many folks seem to think well of it.

I spent a bit of time figuring out how to light the riders in the middle of the day. I ended up creating a light stick by strapping two speedlights together and sticking them on the end of a monopod, so I could run and flash at will. Works pretty well.
