The Rise of the Lady Biker
My project is gathering pace. I have booked the photographic trip of several lifetimes and I’m off to New York, California, Sydney, Singapore and Dubai at the end of November. I’ve photographed some groups of lady bikers over the last few months and enjoyed it so much I have decided to document the rise of the lady biker across the globe on my travels. My latest shoot involved some members of Women in the Wind (Wolf Spirit UK chapter) and in the shoots so far I have tried to highlight some iconic backdrops in the images. I decided to take the photographs for this one on and around the ‘Silver Jubilee Bridge’ which spans the River Mersey from Widnes to Runcorn in Cheshire. An early morning roll call was called for to try and minimise the amount of other traffic. Unfortunately some thunder storms during the night may have put some of the riders, who said they were going, off. Nevertheless we went ahead and had a fantastic time and as it turned out the skies were totally clear and the sun beamed down. The ladies were brilliant. They were willing to go back and forth as often as necessary to get the right shots. As time drew on the traffic built up and we had to call it a day but thankfully got the shots I wanted.
I would like to thank all those who turned up for their co-operation and patience and hopefully they like the shots as much as I do. A special thank you goes out to Andrea Barlow for all her help in promoting and organising everything.
