The day the olympics came to town

Wednesday 1 August 2012 was an unforgettable day, as the Olympic cycling time trial route came through the Walton Road in East Molesey, Surrey where our insurance brokers office is based.

As you would expect insurance came first, but we did manage to catch a bit of the action, seeing Bradley Wiggins zooming by on his way to a well deserved Olympic gold. Sending the Union Jack waving masses home happy, who lined the route 6 or 7 rows deep down the Walton Road. Hopefully the hard pressed local traders also benefited from the influx.

Our David Nash is a keen cyclist, travelling 8 odd miles from home to the office each day. My journey is nearer to 60 miles round trip, so cycling to and from work is out of the question, but I’m seriously tempted in taking up road cycling.
