Cycling at the olympics

Its been months since I was in London.  But I have fond memories and a nice teeshirt from the week I spent at the Olympics.  I attended 6 events in total but the highlights were the first and last events that I attended the Cycling Time Trial at Hampton Court Palace, and the very last night at the velodrome.  The atmosphere at all the events was amazing, but somehow got turned up to 11 when a British contender was doing well or even winning the gold medal.  And I got to see some of my cycling heroes win medals.  So here are some pictures, the highlights of these events.

Here are some of my favourites.
