When Vélo Québec invited me to Montréal for the Go Vélo Bike Festival, I accepted and then called my contacts to borrow a suitable camera. Nikon loaned me the D5500 with three lenses which provided the opportunity both to shoot the ride as well as some interviews for a video about the festival.
Montréal is a wonderful city, with a vibrant cycling culture – the extensive network of cycling lanes, many of which are physically separated from the traffic lanes, were busy with cyclists. The events – the night ride on Friday, the various tours on Sunday were very well attended, as you can see from the photos. And there are also lots of trails to enjoy.
Kim joined me for this trip, and helped me shoot the on-camera segments, which we recorded around Montréal’s McGill University downtown campus. They were recorded using the Sony RX10 III. Audio recorded using the Rodelink videomaker wireless kit.
