Tour of California

Today the Tour of California bike race went from Seaside to San Luis Obispo. I wanted to try my hand at photographing this elite group of riders, although I'm the first to admit I'm no expert on sports photography. So I didn't make an effort to locate the ideal viewing site and I didn't even grab a folding chair when I took off this afternoon.

The riders were expected to arrive between three and four this afternoon but the weather held them up and the new expected time was about 4:30. I was downtown at about two so I checked out the setup. It was pretty major.







I didn't want to hang around for two or three hours, especially given that I had no good place to sit. So I went back to the car and headed out of town. I saw several packs of people on the sides of the road, and I finally chose a location in Cayucos, near the highway. Eventually the riders showed up, in the rain, and I simply grabbed some shots from the car.

The front of the pack:



and the rest...



Surprisingly close together for a 135-mile trek.
