Rowing in Rio: Riding to the venue
August 11, 2016
Today was Emily’s last practice day. She races tomorrow, Friday August 11, at 8 AM EST. Literally 2000 meters out! We took it slow this morning, slept in and took the 11:40 shuttle to the course. Here is a picture look at our daily 1hour commute.
This shot gives you an idea of how Rio 2016 is managing city traffic. Each day we have a police escort, the bus drives in the Olympic lanes, which are marked by the green line on the road. The lane to our left is the public bus lane and the lane to our right is the lane that the locals are left with.
