Velothon 2014 – some photos from the 60 km race in the rain

No, I am not participating this year. In the last minute – having pumped the tires, filled the water bottle, put in the lenses, etc – I decided it was too cold and rainy.

Respect to those of you who are riding!

I went down to Hermannplatz and snapped this photo of the leaders of the 60 km race. Unfortunately my camera is too bad to catch any bib number:

These guys came right after the leaders:

These came some minutes later:

And these came quite a bit later, after I had bought some brötchen at a bakery:

You can tell it was rainy from the pictures. And here are the Twitter reports I read while still undecided about whether I should go or not:

BZ reported from the rainy start, here is a screenshot:

Of course it’s a defeat not to participate, but I’m an adult and I can do what I want. 🙂

Update: Here are the leaders of the 120 km race (looks like a Monet painting):
