Thanks to all those who took part in the 2013 Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride and a special mention to the friends and family of Castle Cameras who volunteered their time to capture the event in photographs.

We took a slightly different approach this year and opted to photograph riders after they had completed their chosen distance.

The boys posed for a test shot before setting off for their 60 mile jaunt around Dorset. Of all our customers only one, Rich, was silly enough to agree to our challenge. From left to right: Rich, James, Luke and Hugh.

The lovely Sarah came out to be our photographer for the day. Snapping photos in 30 degree heat turned out to be quite fun, actually.

Racheal’s Girl Guides came out in force to support the efforts. A huge thank you to you all. The girls offered vital refreshment and refuel after the hot, hot rides as well as directing the riders to the photo tent.

The boys arrived some time later, slightly warmer, slightly lighter and a whole lot closer. Luckily they lined up in the same order as the last photo.

Looking ahead to the Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride 2014
