Today thousands of cyclists rode through the streets of Brisbane with champion cyclist Lance Armstrong to raise money for flood relief.

I think the cyclist with the big, red “R” on his chest to the far right is the man himself. This photo was taken on Riding Road in Balmoral, approaching the Oxford Street roundabout. Today was the first day back at school for a lot of children, and students from the local state school were on their oval to see the thousands of cyclists speeding by.
