I was lucky enough to have the Men & Women’s Olympic Road Race and Time Trials come within a few miles of where I live.
So having watched the Tour and other big races (remember the Milk Race?) since the 1980’s, it was too big an opportunity to miss.
As a result the next few posts will just be a few photos from each race. Each event seemed to gel the local community and the police where doing their bit posing for photos and “high fiving” the kids as the passed by.
It was great to see the elite of cycling pretty much pass the end of your road!
