I crossed the river further down and walked back past this figure – he was quietly readilng with a vacuum flask by his side – I got the impression he would be moving until he’d finished his book.
Doris Schweizer is a member of the Cyclane Pro Cycling Team. Taken during the Women’s Tour de Yorkshire. I just liked the juxtaposition of this one. Two different worlds – I have no doubt the motorway traffic was oblivious to her and her ‘attendants’ and vice versa.
For my sins, I have become a enthusiastic cyclist (nose over the front wheel – well as far as my stomach will let me!), as oppossed to just using my bike as a means of transport. (I’ve got to do something to lose those pounds and raise the heart rate!)
At the recent Tour de France event in Yorkshire, people were waiting for significant periods of time for the cyclists to flash past. This friendly motorbike policeman added a little excitement as he ‘high-fived’ youngsters when he drove down the road. A fair number of older ladies thought they’d get in on the act too!
