15th January 2012 Gloucester City Cross/Western League Round 12
A beautiful but cold Sunday morning saw another free event which opened up possibilities for photography.

The British Cycling website has many events listed www.britishcycling.org.uk/ many of which are free to watch.

This particular event was held around the perimeter of a school/public playing field, with the course winding between houses and around Sunday morning football games. The playing fields at the Beaufort School, Tuffley Gloucester did lack the elevation of other courses but some of the dips proved difficult especially as the riders became tired toward the end of the 50 minute race.

From a photographic point of view the light was low and being more creative was the challenge for the day.

Not a bad couple of hours out of the house with the camera - and of course it was free...always a bonus
