Olympic Gold!!!!


































Although I wasn't  lucky enough to get any tickets to the stadium events at the Olympics, the time trial road race took place only a few miles up the road from where I live. As its one of hubby's favourite sports we had to go and cheer them on..

Here are a few shots of the riders.
                                                                                                                                                             






























This is Bradley Wiggins,  on his way to Olympic gold, he is fantastic and a British hero..




























Here we are ready to cheer, luckily we found a back street where the crowd wasn't as big so we had a fabulous view.

This Olympics is so exciting that I have found little time to craft although I will have a card tomorrow that I have made for a friend

Wow, thanks for the pics, Sally! I love seeing these athletes bike outfit--so colorful and aerodynamic!I don't blame you for not being crafty. After all, Olympics in London comes only once in a blue moon...crafting can wait! Enjoy!

Oh my, how exciting to have such a fabulous vantage point for the cycling event. Thanks for sharing these great photos, love the one of you all with your Team GB flags! I'm afraid I've been watching too much of the Olympics and haven't been very creative either.

Great pics Sally! Did you see the breakfast news this morning about the couple who have just had a baby boy? They called him Bradly because he appears to have little Wiggins style sideburns! Jo x
