Today I saw my first ever Olympic event – one minute of the men’s 150 mile bike road race. It passed near my house. Here is my shaky video of the Peleton racing past. You can get a sense of the atmosphere, which was tremendous. And you can get a sense of how fast these guys were going by how fast the chase cars are rolling behind them — which is noticeably faster than the speed limit on the road. And this was 130 miles into the race.
And yes, it was fantastic.
