2012 London Olympics #1

I managed to get to a couple of Olympic events and spent a day in the park. It’s been a fantastic meeting.

The next few posts will consist of some badly taken photographs.

The first event I went to was the Men’s and Women’s cycling time trial. I was invited to Surbiton (about 5km from the finish) by a friend from my Willesden CC days. It was great to meet up with the West London gang again.

My photos of the women’s event were (even more) rubbish so they are not included. Emma Pooley did a great ride but the course did not suit her.

The men’s race was dominated by Bradley Wiggins. I didn’t photograph any of the leading contenders because I wanted to be there in the moment.

Friends
