Welcome to JoeRides.com coverage of the 2015 Fall edition of the Thunder Beach / Panama City bike rally. This year we will be shooting in our normal location on front beach road about a 1/4 mile east of the Hidden Lagoon putt-putt course. Our shooting times are as follows

Thursday 09:00am - 01:00pm
Friday 09:00am - 01:00pm
Saturday 09:00am - 01:00 pm
Sunday 08:00am - 12:00noon

All of the above times are dependent on weather conditions of course. If the JoeRides tent is up, meaning it is up to its full height, then we are shooting. If it is lowered to its lowest position then we are not shooting at that time.

As you ride by and we shoot your pic, note the time of day in which you rode by as it will determine the time slot in which your photos are published on that day. Don't be bashful, smile, wave and give us your best biker pose, safely of course.

Occasionally we will come out and shoot at sunset, this year around 06:00pm. Sunset shots offer up some spectacular colors and effects, particularly when you ride from East to West facing the sunset. So cruise by and maybe we'll be out to shoot your pics but if we are not out, enjoy the sunset.

We work to edit and post each days photos up the night of the shoot but that may slip some due to the numbers of photos we shoot and edit. So please be patient as we will have your photos up ASAP. You can see your photos by clicking here.

We strive to shoot everyone's picture as you ride by but there are times when that simply isn't possible due to traffic and shooting obstructions such as cars and trucks and other bikes that may pass in front of you. If we miss you, we apologize and assure you that it isn't intentional.


Hope you enjoyed the 2015 Fall Rally. Look forward to shooting you again,
Spring Rally April 27th thru May 1st 2016.
