Just a quick note with some pics from today.
I have to say it has been very cool from the very beginning. I was basically met and driven to the Olympic Center in their van, which had all the Olympic garb on it.
When you arrive there are pictures of all the athletes everywhere that trained at the center and won a medal along with clocks placed all over the facility that are ticking down to the next Olympic games.
After arriving, I spent about 30 minutes reassembling my bike and getting ready for the afternoon ride.
There are something like 28 riders in all which made for an interesting ride in the rain. Its seemed a little sketchy with a bunch of riders feeling a little twitchy as we get our legs ready for the next few days of fireworks.
I almost forgot, my room is near the BMX track, which is pretty cool. Made me want to get on my bike and give it a go.
