Practicing for a 5 day cycle tour.

Members of  SAP Brackenfell are practicing for a 496 km cycle tour that is just around the corner.  My husband is one of the cyclist that is cycling in aid of the SAPS Educational Trust Fund.

I am also practicing but not  so hard on the bicycle but behind the camera. I am going to document the whole cycle tour. I hope to get some lovely action shots and of course try to capture all the fun afterwards.
