Are ASDA official Olympic sponsors?

With apologies for the link to another forum...

Where did they get the rowing coaches' bikes assembled?

Actually, seriously, I hope no one gets hurt as a result of that dangerous cock up.
Getting there...

Or wet.  It's interesting that they seem to be riding them ok, though, while not looking where they're going as well.  (I saw a bit on the telly this morning).

I saw a demonstration on telly once, of how reversing the forks makes a bike more likely to travel in a straight line. (They reversed the forks, gave it a shove, and it rolled for ages before its speed dropped to stalling speed). Since the coaches are mainly riding a straight line, maybe it helps!

I saw one chap riding the opposite way to all the others this morning, I don't think his team are going to medal much... Or maybe he was trying to counteract the forks....

On Saturday, I'm sure I saw a couple of Boris Bikes in the coaching peleton.
