Racing with the Pros in the Tour of Beijing!

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

I'm not much of a techy so I don't understand why this has happened, but I'm so grateful that You Tube now has so many videos lengthier than 10 minutes. And in particular I'm grateful for the many awesome cycling resources that are there, among which are a series of 50+ minute recaps of the 2012 Tour of Beijing.

So it's winter in Minnesota--and praise God we finally have lots of snow--which means I spend lots of time on the indoor bike trainer at this time of year (Cyclops Fluid). Over the last few days, I've set up my computer on a TV Tray right in front of my bike, hooked it up to some speakers, and raced with the pros in the first three stages of the Tour of Beijing. I came close the first two days, but yesterday I finally broke through and won the stage!

Can't wait to hit stage four this evening! If you love cycling, I encourage you to check out the mass of cycling related video on You Tube. It's not front page news, but it's probably the best store house of such material available in the USA.

Blessings to you all!

    That's a pretty cool idea. We have various stationary bikes in our fitness center in which you can "participate" in a wide variety of scenarios but so far I've stuck with the traditional stationary bikes. Maybe I'll give the other ones a try. Thanks!
