Letchworth Grand Prix Cycle Event

June 19, 2015

The Tour of Hertfordshire came to Letchworth on Sunday 14th June.

As I live three minutes from the circuit, I walked across intending to shoot for an hour or so. I ended up shooting for nearly six hours and took around 1800 images.

The Broadway in the centre of town was closed off for the day. Competitors cycled around the Broadway, into the top of Gernon Road where they had a hairpin outside the Broadway Cinema, they then cycled up the taxi rank, past the Town Hall and back into the Broadway.

The circuit was nice and compact and meant I could get to all points around the circuit within 5  minutes walk. I got the fast spots, the slow spots and all the bends.

I really enjoyed the event. It was well run, timings were perfect and each race lasted long enough to get shots from several different positions so I could get a variety of action shots.

I quite fancy doing some more cycling stuff, it's certainly very colourful. I came away with 1400 usable shots out of the 1800 I took and overall am very pleased with the results.
