Joe is maybe not as well-known in the North of Ireland but over the border, he is a renowned figure in the cycling world, not only for his camera work but for his expertise in organising high-level cycle races, a loyal bread and butter cycle club member in so many roles since the seventies, Joe told us “My involvement in cycling started shortly after the foundation of my local club, Mullingar CC in 1976. Now know as Lakeside Wheelers Mullingar I was actively involved over the years as a club officer or race director up until recent times. As a club race director I was very proud of the many events our club promoted over the years such as the Mullingar 2 Day, Mullingar GP, Tour of the Lakes and National Crit Championships. However, hosting the very successful National Road Race Championships in Multyfarnham 2014  was a real stand out event for me. Over the years I have enjoyed touring events particularly some challenging ones in the USA, Sweden, Belgium and France. The camera is never far from my side and I enjoy a wide range of subject matters including landscape, wildlife and sports photography. Difficult to pick out a favourite cycling event but the Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix and World Cycling Champs in Florence and Yorkshire stand out for me. It’s hard to pick out 15 images but the following will give a flavour of what I capture.  I’ve been lucky to meet some wonderful people and form some great friendships through my involvement in cycling over the years. For now, I am just looking forward to getting back out with my camera and on the bike when these troubled times are behind us. “ Thank you, Joe, your photos add some more quality to the series.
