However at the beginning of this week I began to have further thoughts. It had to be central for both my sons to meet up so that probably meant London; I was told to be in Cambridge for an early lunch before we set off; I had established that normal clothes should be worn, in layers as it could be hot, so that meant we weren't going to be doing anything particularly active, so maybe we were going to a circus!!
As usual I turned on my radio first thing in the morning and heard the sports news and it was then that I guessed what we were going to be doing - The UCI 2016 Track Cycling World Championships - that were being held at the Olympic Velodrome!!
If you follow me regularly we went there in October so this was an obvious choice. Last time we were able to spend time in the centre of the track but not this time -
|Sir Bradley Wiggins - looking pensive but not racing at this session|
|Cyclists were warming up|
|Hugh Dennis for Sport Relief|
and finally the racing started -
|Callum Skinner - unfortunately knocked out in the quarter finals|
|but appeared cheerful whilst cooling down|
|Jason Kenny in the sprint|
where he eventually won the Gold medal last night!
Then it was the Omnium 'Flying Lap' and it was time for Mark Cavendish to take to the track
|He was flying|
|Cav on his way to warm down|
|There goes Laura Trott|
|Go Laura ....|
My whole day was finished off with us all having a meal together. A great day out for a Mother's day treat and thank you to the family. Love you all.
