San Diego Imperial Swimming – Part 2 – Beach Cruisers

Most people think that when someone says they are going to shoot a swim meet, that all the images appearing on screen would be wet, wild, and full of people swimming. Although for the most part that is true, I was able to take the time to explore the premises during a lull in the meet. What is interesting about Coronado is that everywhere you go, there are people riding their bikes all across town. These aren’t mountain bikes or street cruisers, instead  95% of the bikes I saw were beach cruisers.

When I showed up at the meet, I was confronted with a long row of bikes parked up against the fence, their bright colors reflecting the hot San Diego sun. Flowing streamers, colorful baskets, and shiny bells accented each of these bicycles in their own unique way. I felt as if I was attending  a bike show, although I was really here for a swim meet.

Moral of the story? Get a bike. Ride around. Enjoy the view. Shoot some photos.
