Push to the Finish

I went to the East Bay Bike Path for today's photo, planning to get a photo or two with the Squantum Club's gazebo in the background. When I spotted this gentleman approaching on what looks to be a homemade recumbent 3-wheeler, though, I positioned myself for this photo of him bracing for the final hill before the parking area. It was brutally hot today, and the placement of this hill at the end of the ride would violate several clauses in the Geneva Convention. There's no multi-gearing on this tricycle, so he really had to work to reach the finish.
Post processing started with a classic filter in Topaz B&W FX. I adjusted color sensitivity sliders, adaptive exposure, regions, contrast, boost black, and protect highlights. A levels adjustment was added in PSE.
