To exercise the Legs or exercise the Nikon?

To exercise the Legs or exercise the Nikon? That was the dilemma this Morning as I contemplated between riding my Bicycle or scooting over to Photograph the Killinchy GP Cycle race.

In the end I decided to load up a backpack with the trusty Nikon and Cycle over to Photograph the racing. It was a good job I did not decide to go for a proper bike ride as my legs were strangely empty and not wanting to push the wattage required to sustain a decent speed and so I took a leaisurely spin up the Greenway in to Comber then the main road to Ballygowan and out the Carrickmannon road with only a couple of minutes to wait for the opening lap of the Killinchy GP.

As soon as the race traffic had passed me it was back on the Saddle again to Cycle on to my next shooting location.
