What a day. Slightly bizarre but pretty good. Todays event, the table tennis, was at the ExCel. About 5 miles away in a straight line. But the cycle lanes aren’t in a straight line. That’s right. We took our lives into our hands and biked across London. Half the Olympic cycle routes were closed so navigation was interesting. But we got there and back intact. Saw some interesting sites. Closed roads, parks in the centre of town, but my personal favourite, stone table tennis tables. In a park somewhere. Don’t ask me where though.

As for the table tennis. Great match. Germany v China in the men’s semi final. China won out in 4 matches but Germany never rolled over right to the end.

Hate to think how I’m going to feel tomorrow!
