TOUR DE FRANCE

We bought road bikes for beginners several years ago, but we seldom ride nowadays.
Instead, we have ridden on a exercise bike in our house for fitness.
When I started to ride on it, pedaling within doors was very boring, and I got tired immediately.
In order to ride enjoyably, I moved the bike to the front of a TV.
I tried various TV programmes, and had finally found that bicycle racing programmes are best for cheering me up while pedaling the bike.  Up to now, I have recorded many those programmes to a hard disc of TV.  

Last week le tour de France 2014 has began, and I have been recording programmes on satellite TV everyday.

On the satellite TV of NHK

At the stage 1, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Prince Harry, attended at the Grand Depart in Leeds.


I like those programmes because I can see the nice sceneries of rural areas of England and France, and I have been enjoying pedaling the exercise bike.  Thirty minutes of exercise passes in an instant.

I was very sorry that Mark Cavendish of Omega Pharma fell and injured his shoulder.  He is one of my favorite cyclists.
