I took this photo for Norrel. There were many more of these brand-new bikes, but I couldn't fit them all in. Even better, we walked by the speed-skating oval here just about the time Sven Kramer (NL) was winning the gold medal for the Men's 5000 m.
"Kramer won the 25th Olympic gold medal for a Dutch speedskater, matching Norway for second on the sport's all-time Olympic medal list, three behind the United States.
The Dutch have now won 76 of their 79 Winter Olympic medals in speedskating, the most lopsided one-sport ratio for any nation at the Olympic Games."
These must belong to the women's team, great find Nawitka.
Ha-ha Guy! Sharp eye, as always. Actually, I found out that they are part of a bike-pool supplied to the Dutch team so that they can easily get back and forth to the not-all-that-nearby Heineken House where the Dutch are welcoming the world.
If I'd known these were free bikes we could have used them to get over there too. It was a long walk, and we'd already walked a fair way to get to the Oval, which turned out to be not where the beer and giant TVs were. Still, I got to see the outside of the Oval, which was nice.
You always seen to spot the good colour shots.
They should all get tickets for parking violations. It is posted, you know...
