A group of bikers in on a Saturday evening riding through the park. Now that's as extreme as it gets around here.

The composition on your photo leaves me wondering what to look at.

A change in position or a closer crop would have removed the stop sign and tree and given a better look at the bikers. The people that are in focus in the background almost lead my eye there as does with the light on the curb in the foreground.

The blur on the bikers is not enough to make them look like they're moving, they appear more out of focus than moving. A slower stutter speed may get you the speed movement that you are looking for.

I think you had a wonderful idea in taking this photo, taking moving objects is not an easy task for me so I give you a salute for your attempt!

This is a nice example of action-- just a busy background. Still your colors are very good. Maybe a tighter crop here would of focused the viewer to the action. ? I find myself looking at the baby, the couple and the parked cars. Just my 2 cents. All the best.
