Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

More weekend reflections from the Olympic Park

These giant reflective letters are outside the Copper Box, which is now used as a multi purpose sports hall.









 This is the velodrome where all the indoor cycling events took place. You can now go and try it out but looking at the curviture of the walls, I won't be doing that.







 Walking around the velodrome you could see the rest of the Park reflected in the windows.

  3. Something, too, a little crazy about going 'round and 'round in circles until you're so dizzy you can't stand up. :-)

  8. Lots of reflections off metal & glass ... it's good to see the complex is being well maintained and re-utilised where possible.

  10. I like the letters. What do they spell or stand for? I, too, think it's great that the buildings have become a park and a place everyone can now enjoy for recreation.

    1. They just spell the word 'run'. It's as simple as that.

  11. I have still to visit the Olympic park I'm ashamed to say. I used to love walking around Stratford and being in the queue of traffic whenever West Ham were playing! I will need to visit at some point this year. Thanks for the glimpse of this wonderful re-generation.

  14. I've never seen or been inside a velodrome. The architecture is amazing, and I'm sure the cyclists are even more so. Those huge reflective letters are fun! Happy weekend!
