Caught the Tour De France today- What better way to spend the French national holiday? But, who knew the Tour de France had more cars than bicycles? Three hours of waiting and then all the bikes had passed in a matter of seconds. Had I blinked, I would have missed it. A little disappointing it was…

Nonetheless, it was a god day out and a great chance to experience French patriotism in action. And of course, I couldn’t help but get into the spirit myself and took the chance to spruce up the house a bit for the occasion.

    Jason, I got a recumbent bicycle and I love it! I have been riding into Covington for my morning workout and it is not at all tiring. John Preble did a poster for his bike fest (this is where I found my used recumbent): When I see an adult on a bicycle, I do not despair for the future of the human race. ~H.G. Wells
    Me too!

      Love it! I suppose the French and the Dutch give us a lot of hope then!
