A sporting interlude

As many of you know Kevin is a keen cyclist and enters lots of cycling events throughout the year.  We both follow the Tour de France and other big cycle races with great interest, and the Olympics, especially the cycling has been fantastic.  Today we were both excited to attend a local cycling event (one that Kevin usually enters but this year decided against as other events were more important to him and you can't do them all )  Anyway it was Bradley Wiggins launch of the 'Bradley Wiggins Foundation' and he was riding along with some of the entrants so we went along to see him.  The weather was awful and we ended up waiting in the pouring rain but managed to get some pics of him.


                     


We also had the privilege of holding an Olympic Gold Medal that was won by Steve Burke in the Men's Team Pursuit cycle event....and yes it was very very heavy! :)

Kevin has ridden with Steve several times and it was such an honour to see how proud he was of gaining his first Olympic Gold Medal!
                                                     

Well that's been my day today :) hope you have all had a great Sunday.
Hugs until the next time.
