Cycle June / July Cover

Our turn to appear on a magazine cover

We not only took the cover image for the current Cycle magazine - we are the cyclists toiling up the Buttertubs climb in the shot.

Radio controlled Nikon to the rescue - so trying to look cool and pressing the remote control at the same time.

Take 1: We both rode up strongly - whoops! forgot to switch the camera on - what was that Marian?

Take 2: One of us fell off doing a trackstand!

Take 3: Riding up strongly - the sun goes in!

Take 4: Remote control jams and fires off over 1000 shots before I get to the camera.

Take 5: Have you switched it on? Do you think the sun is right? Put it in bottom gear!
30 shots later it's in the bag - Simples!

Looking forward to seeing the Tour de France riding over these roads in July.
