Yeah on Tuesday all the people who work in London will have an opportunity to pop down. Then again tomorrow is a weekend. I don't think i can make it there in time tomorrow due to munchkins but Tuesday is a definite for me whether I come with the little ones and wife or in a business suit with my laptop

Same as it was on Saturday as above

If you look at the Tri Course map you will see an 'out and back' on the run route to the left by West Carriage Drive, this is also on the bike course
We will be by the ramp covering the 'raised pedestrian walkway'  on the return (the clue is the big sign) opposite the Serpentine Gallery on the other side of the road, ie: the Diana Fountain side!

Found the spot on the map - but what time do we need to be there by? I'm sure I've seen this somewhere but cba to look back. I'll try and get some olympic cup cakes if someone will induge me on what time to get there for.

Race starts at 11:30, but I'll be following her Meldyness's lead and aiming to get there for 9:30-ish.  Shortest at the front, tallest at the back.

Was there on Saturday and as usual mustering the troops to get up early enough to get a reasonable view proved as hard as ever. We finally reached Hyde Park as 8.15am. Bloody hell there were a lot of people youngest, being short in stature, missed out on seeing the swim as we were in row z of the standing masses.

So we moved over to the road side and watched the girls whizz by 7 times this cheered the little one up abit. We were next to the huge screen so settled there to watch the run, alongside of the Swiss Olympic drinking team which added to the entertainment.

Only downside was the hugely inflated prices of a coule of bacon rolls and the emensly expensive stuff in the pop-up shop.

My advise to anyone going on Tuesday is get there early, my wife and children are going back up for the men's tri but are leaving loads earlier, I unfortunately have to work

My train doesnt get in to M'bone til just before nine so I shall expect the advance party to take up the spots!

We decided against watching the swim start and there was masses of space by the barriers

Dooz... just look for the 'raised pedestrian crossing' sign opposite the Serpie Gallery and stay there and save enough space for 20 people 

06/08/2012 at 19:56
