The Fujifilm X100 isn’t the obvious camera to use when taking photos of cycle racing, but I gave it a go.

Today saw the turn of Velo Club Walcot to run a round of the Western League Cyclocross. I think we did OK.

The last display of the season at Shuttleworth was billed as the Air Race day, and was to feature, strangely enough, a lot of planes used in air races. It would be the first time that we got to see the collections de Havilland DH.88 Comet and Percival Mew Gull in the air.

Bath hosted a stage start in the Tour of Britain this year with the race departing from below the Royal Crescent before heading through town and up Wellsway on the way to Bradford-on-Avon and ultimately the stage finish in Hemel Hempsted. It’s been announced that the race will be back in Bath in 2016 and 2018, hopefully at least one of those will be a stage finish.

A superb day out at Shuttleworth for the Air Pageant where I managed to get sunburned. The only downside was the fact they didn’t fly the DH88 Comet until 7, and we’d had to leave for the long drive home half an hour or so earlier. I’m mainly annoyed that they didn’t bother to tell us until the end of the main display that flying the Comet was only a possibility, given that they’d made a big thing about how it was displaying for the first time in many years. At least I know to take their advertised line-ups with a much larger pinch of salt than previously needed.
