The Bikist

Another image for the 52 portraits of me challenge.
This week the prompt is 'favorite'.

My favorite form of exercise (when weather permits; I'll snowshoe in the winter) is riding my bike.

I usually wear a helmet when I ride, but I don't have a fedora large enough to fit over my helmet. :P

It's just shy of one mile from my apartment to this bike trail, so I felt safe enough to not wear a helmet.

I clamped my camera to a post near the road that crosses this trail and set my remote to take fifty photos 3 seconds apart and then more or less rode around in circles to capture myself coming and going.
I focused on my bike when I parked it and the set the focus to manual and used a smallish aperture to keep me in focus.
Glad someone didn't nick the camera 😊
Great selfie

@annied Thanks, Ms Annie. I only saw on lady jogging, and one other biker while I was there. The cars passing by would be going too quickly to notice the camera, and I was always quite close to it.

Well done, Bill. I love the media and that you had the light on the bike turned on.

@henrir Thanks very much Henri. My light flashes rapidly. In a lot of the captures, it was off, so I narrowed down my selections to only those with the light on.
