London Experience: Triathlon

One afternoon I left the hotel I'd been working from to go to the hotel I was staying in. I quickly discovered the bus stop I'd been using was closed, so I kept walking and found myself along the bike portion of the triathlon event. I'm pretty certain, I wasn't there for the event, but for a training session (mostly because there were very few of us along the course.) But it was still fun to get this close to the some amazing athletes.

It made for a long commute home (I had to walk the entire way because all the bus stops were closed) but it was so worth it.

Looking at these photos again make me excited to take my new bike for a ride!

Typhoon's Morton's Fork made me sing along as I listened to it today, so I thought I'd share. Pin It

That first shot is totally awesome!
Once, in Scotland, they rerouted my bus because a kilt shop caught fire. It took me awhile to find the new bus stop...it was a little wacky.

You ought to take a selfie of you buzzing along on your bike (in spandex too ; )
How exciting to see premier athletes so close. Sounds like the long walk home may have, in this case, been worth it.
