London Surrey Cycle Race

Today was the London Surrey Cycle Race, Olympic Test Event.  The race started and finished in London and came out to Surrey.  Having checked on the timings and found it passed by Hampton Court twice, on the way out to Surrey and on the way back.    

So I popped down to Hampton Court to see the cyclists on the way out.

Then found a seat, chatted to a another spectator over lunch and waited for the cyclists to come back.
It was a great morning and a really good atmosphere.

  1. Made a good photo event, too! There were a few road closures around here for this event - I wonder what the Olympics will be like, roadwise around here, what with Royal Holloway being boarding for athletes and all...
