Zoom goes the bike

So perhaps the title of this post is not 100% true, more “go” than “zoom”! It has been a while since I cycled to work; last time I was knocked off by bike by a van driver and I damaged my shoulder. My shoulder has mostly healed now and my monthly parking permit has expired so I have decided to get back on my bike and cycle to work. It’s not a long way or a particularly¬†hard route but it is enough for me (my knees don’t work very well).


The Bristol 10k Race 2011

Run Horse Man Run

Today I left the house at 7am when most were still asleep and cycled to Millennium Square to start a day of photography at the Bristol 10k Race. After an hour or so helping St Peter’s Hospice to erect their stand (it was a big stand) I made my way to the Press Office where I was lucky enough to be granted a Media Pass. This Media Pass (akin to a Press Pass) granted me access to the track, both the start and finish lines and other VIP areas. I decided not to push my luck and kept away from the VIP area, but stuck around the Start line for both waves.
