Commonwealth Games Road Races

Glasgow came out on the last day of a fabulous 2014 Commonwealth Games to spur on the ladies and men taking part in the cycling road races.

The race started and finished at Glasgow Green, crossing through the city centre and out towards Byers Road.

The ladies' race came first with the cyclists covering seven laps of the course. The weather held out for the ladies, but by the start of the men's race the showers of rain were becoming heavier and more prolonged.

Half way through the race Glasgow showed the competitors what a shower of rain really is, and by the end of the twelve laps only a dozen of the riders were still racing. By this time my camera had been put away and I saw the winner crossing the line from the dryness of my own home.
