Nice. We saw you on the television when the camera moto passed right by probably a second before you took the image below. I mentioned to the wife 'that looks like one of the guys who posts images to the on the road thread. :D

Really nice pics, and a lot to learn from them. I hope you don't mind if I copy some of your techniques, I'm new to shooting pics of pro cyclists (and sadly don't get the chance all too often).
The exifs should be with the photos in my gallery on the website (see my signature) – probably we all have to do the try and error process mostly ourselves 😅
Those look amazing, specially if we take in consideration you had to carry the photo gear on a 150km ride. Can you share which gear did you use? camera and lenses?

Canon 1DsIII with a 24-70/2.8 and a 70-200/2.8. But it is not only about the equipment ;)

Of course it is not only about the equipment but it is a remarkable effort to carry those kind of gear on a150km bike ride! I took my SLR once on a 250km ride and i swore to God i would never repeat the experience of riding with an SLR camera on a bike ride! Do you have any kind of frame/handlebar bag for such or you use a backpack? The photos look absolutely stunning, congratulations!

In this case I took the gear in my Apidura bikepacking saddle bag. For longer trips, I just bought a Sony RX100, but haven't tried it yet.

Be aware that when looking through the viewfinder (if you're not using the screen to take pictures) the screen will be shut off for looking at pictures (that's how it is for my dad's model, really hope they changed it). Even if you want to look at the shots you took, you need to look through the viewfinder. A bit annoying, but other than that it's really handy when you don't want to carry a DSLR around.

I don't think your dad has fully got to grips with his RX100, lol. The electronic viewfinder came in with the RX1000 iii and has an eye sensor. You can set EVF to be on all the time, or rear monitor to be on all the time, or use the eye sensor to automatically flip between them. The same applies for image review. On all models you can review images on the rear monitor, or, in the EVF!

The RX100 is a fantastic little camera but it has a complex menu system.

Thanks for the advice, I'll look into it.

I live in the UK (London), but my partner's family are in southern Germany. We've just spent 2.5weeks over there and I took my bike. The highlight for me, cycling over there, is the network of excellent cycle paths and lanes (Radnetz) - you're rarely on a trafficked road (if you so choose) and when you are it's only the odd tractor and local driver.

I'll see if anyone recognises any of the locations - they're not world famous landmarks, but I'm aware we have a diverse and well spread out membership here!

(crappy phone photos, sorry. I also owe some better bike pics - I'll sort that and use a proper camera in doing so!)
