All pink for the Giro

All pink for the Giro, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

Amsterdam went pink this weekend to commemorate the starting of the first three races in the Giro d'Italia.

The first race was a time trial through the streets of Amsterdam, with cyclists going off every two minutes or so, one-by-one, making for a nice long drawn out spectacle. Lots of people were oiut on the streets watching despite it being a cold grey day, the likes of which we have had too much the past few days...

I spent some tiem wandering around the Start area, watching the cyclists coming and going and warming up and cooling down, followed by meeting up with friends for a beer half way along the route.
