Volunteers at the Rev Cambridge New Zealand

The Rev volunteers

18-Feb-12 08:16: Young men – Cambridge High School students – fundraising volunteers (funds towards a school basketball team trip to the US apparently) at today’s REV Cycle Festival which is using the facilities of Cambridge High School (registration), Cambridge greenbelt (parking, marketing, merchandising and celebration) and greater Cambridge rural roads (the race itself) – yes, perhaps a little Matamata as well. The event has it’s own website its own corporate look and, of course; a Facebook page (with vanity URL no less!) and makes much of such exotic local locations as Scotsman Valley and French Pass (I guess they do sound exotic to visitors). It’s all a bit exciting really, very colourful, a smidgen carnival – and I do like the t-shirt. A few more photos.

Ariel Walter in front

In deciding to photograph today from a observer’s point of view – as you do – as I do – I had one image in mind and this is the variation on that idea as it appeared towards the end of the day – cropped – oh well, close!  There are others but this suits me; Ariel Walter won this race from – sorry – I do not know the name of her competitor. Interestingly the Facebook f makes an appearance in colours not a million miles away from the competitor number plates. I tend to like little visual plays like this – I’m sure they’re Facebook friends. unedited day gallery
