London Olympics: Men's Cycle Road Race
There was a great mood all the time, with the police motorbike riders doubling up as warming up act for the main show.
Of course the bikes flew by in a second or two, just time for a lucky shot to capture Britain's Bradley Wiggins (above), winner of the 2012 Tour de France
Then they were gone and the crowd relaxed, smiling and barriers were broken, so strangers talked to strangers and found connections (more later).
Alas the race didn't go according to a script by Danny Boyle and so there were no medals for Team GB.
Ah well, many days to go.
