The GB men's national team has been on a cycling training camp in South Africa as they begin the Olympic year, trading the British winter for summer in the Southern Hemisphere.

Double Olympic champion, reigning world champion, and Rio Olympic hopeful Pete Reed—a photographer when he's not holding an oar—has been documenting their experience. Below are a few photos he's posted to his Instagram account—if you're not following along already, Reed offers a unique, personal look at the Road to Rio, combining portraits of teammates with training shots and reflections on what it means to compete for a place on the Olympic team.
