Bicycle Racing at the Velodrome

Rob Klausch is hosting this Meetup. He races at the Velodrome every Tuesday night. If you signed up for a previous event at the Velodrome, please do not RSVP again so someone else can get a chance to get photographs. We only have 5 spots available to shoot on the infield, but anyone can watch from the stands.

We spoke to the manager about allowing members to photograph the races. He asked that we limit the number of photographers to 5. We will repeat this event until the racing season ends in August so we can accommodate more people who have an interest in this type of photography.

Rob will give you some tips on how to get the best photos if you have never done this before. A[masked]mm zoom is recommended.

    I've just changed my RSVP. Since I'll be driving in from Boulder, I don't want to drive there and find that we've been washed out.

    Just a little weather info, if it is raining the races will be cancelled. Now saying that, people may be there waiting to see if it clears up so will it give you opportunities for different types of captures, yes.

    I am not noticing an option to include a +1 and my husband is as much or more excited about going to this as I am. I have been thinking of adding his as a member since he now has his own camera. Would love to go to one of the next two events. It's been so long since I have joined the group that I have no idea how to go about getting him a membership. Any ideas?

      Just have Marty set up his own Meetup account then join the group. I didn't allow for +1s with these events because of the limited space that we have and usually the +1 is a non-shooter.

      Hi, Ken you were out last week. Are you planning on this week also, or could you open this up for another member?
