The following message was sent to me by a member of the Nashville Photography group who is involved in this race, see message below with information on the April 7th race and the details on whom to contact.
Cedar Hill Criterium Race (bicycles)
We have a great bike (bicycle) race happening on Sunday, April 7th, at Cedar Hill Park in Madison, TN. Great opportunity to get some practice with high speed action shots!
There will also be (2) race vehicles during each 30-45 minute race; a lead car, that leads the peloton (racers) and a follow car, that follows the peloton. I can arrange to have photographers in either vehicle to get "live" photos from the front, or the rear LOL.
Cedar Hill is a beautiful park, and I have Metro police blocking the roads, so we have the inner road, which is a 1.6 mile loop that surrounds a lake, as ours for the day.
Attached is a link to the race, please email me if you're interested in either car, or if you're interested in shooting and sharing your shots!
NOTE: according to the flyer the races start at 8:30am and the last race starts at 3:35pm> There are a variety of divisions. This will be a great opportunity to practice action shots and also try something new and different. I set the time for an hour before start of the first race so that you might have time to do some shots of the riders preparing for the races. If you look them up online you can get to the race form and see where the set up will be for the races. Thanks go to Don Fields for suggesting this! I love the interest in all things photography lately in the group. I am looking forward to meeting everyone at several posted events!!
