The Olympic Torch Relay was due at the White Water Centre and we were due to meet Access Sport Fundraising Director, Dave Boorman. Luckily the route was alongside the canal so not too much route stressing.
Brilliant to be there with lots of activity, including demonstrations on the water and a large raft carrying the torch, not once, but twice and a particularly good plunge into the water doused the flame on the initial run.

|It's that taxi again - no stopping it!|

The coats are on a seat near by - don't be fooled!
As if this wasn't enough excitement we were then filmed and Jake was interviewed for London Tonight (don't know if they used it?) Anyway, at the end of the interview we were asked to pedal off into the sunset, except our sunset was actually a torrential downpour - oh joy!
