    Friday afternoons are the best time to be on CT.

    You always get a story left of centre, sans controversy, be it about travel or why someone loves cycling. Or something else. It inevitably gets you thinking about why you feel in love with riding a bike and/or travelling the world. Great stuff CT.

    I also love how this is another 2-person team. I have to convince my wife we can do this!

    • Glad you noticed! Friday afternoons are usually our slowest time, so why not have throw some different stuff out there?!

    Nice article Riley! I love a good story from the photographers perspective. Beardy is a talented guy.

    I definitely agree with Michele, great story, that’s the Friday afternoon post. I love the TDF for these posts. In these days the press/TV tends to focus too much on drugs leaving less and less space to the stories coming from the backstage, maybe less popular but always a great read

    Great work Riley, awesome article. Keep up with the great work ;)

    Beardy’s Caravan is an extraordinary site – terrific photos. The ‘incidental’ shots of dogs, roadside characters and food, etc. really take his shots way beyond standard cycling reportage. You can feel the ‘vibe’. I’m also impressed how he keeps his beard hair out of the lens.

    Beardy’s Caravan reminds me of the daily TDF galleries that used to appear on CyclingTips; it’s nice to be able to enjoy that again.

    • It interesting how those photo galleries have waned over the past couple years. With social media platforms like instagram, people now see the highlight reel of dozens of photographers from every stage. It feels like we’re wasting our time posting galleries every day as they’re not well read anymore. Now we’re posting after every few stages and they get much better traction. I think they’re a bit more special this way. BTW, we just posted one:

    Marcus is such a great photographer. It’s great that you are giving him more exposure, pun intended.

    Beardy’s Caravan at the Giro was spectacular and he has just continued where he left off. Love the saturation he gets from low light photos.
