Letape Australia bike race

Great morning.  Watching and cheering the Letape Australia bicycle race.  It’s a one day race organised by the Tour de France.  There is a sprint, a King of the Mountain and a general race winner.  We drove the race route yesterday and today walked up to the end of our road to join a little group of locals cheering the four thousand riders on.  All of the locals in the area join in the spirit of the race and decorate the local towns. The Jindabyne area decorated the streets and businesses with yellow bicycles, the Berridale area with green bicycles and the Dalgety area with polka dot decorations.  It was a lot of fun cheering the riders on.
