Olympic Training Part 2

So what happens when we don't win the bid?

As you can see by the picture I took on the DLR yesterday, yet another person a bit hacked off with the Olympic bid stuff that's being literally shoved down our eyeballs on the tube.

Read in this morning's Metro that we'll find out in exactly six months time on July 6th whether or not we have won. The greatest potential stumbling block to London getting it is apparently our transport system. On February 16th there's a a three day fact finding tour by the IOC (International Olympic Committee), so perhaps Ken thinks that by throwing stickers all over the place and hurting people's eyes with
nasty yellow seats on the tube, that the delegates won't notice how long they've been waiting for trains.

So what's going to happen to all of those lovely Olympic Bid trains in July when (sorry, Freudian slip) if, we don't win the bid?
