Olympic fever // Men’s road cycling

I was so excited to go to watch my first Olympic event… the men’s road cycling race. I didn’t have ticket, but thought that we’d be able to get a glimpse somehow. I met up with my parents in Putney… they were late as usual, so by the time they’d got there the pavements had all filled up! We managed to slot ourselves in up by Putney Bridge and saw the cyclists whoosh by. It wasn’t a great spot though, so after having a spot of breakfast we wandered up the course whilst they circled Box Hill and found an amazing position on a corner, so when the peloton arrived we had a great view of them coming towards us and cycling off… perfect! It was such a lovely day… the weather was great, everyone was so friendly, and even though Team GB didn’t get a medal it was still great to see our athletes at work!
