Back on Bikes

Last month, I photographed my first few bike events of the year. Mountain biking and cycling are popular pastimes in Bend, as in much of Oregon, and I shoot a number of races and events throughout the season. The annual Chainbreaker draws riders of all abilities to a combination of dusty and forested trails near Shevlin Park. Part of the course loops around an infield, making it a little more spectator-friendly, and includes obstacles that proved challenging for a few racers.

The Steel Stampede in Crooked River Ranch features a very different type of bike. Enthusiasts ride vintage motorcycles while competing on trials courses, testing their balance and handling as opposed to speed.
