Tour de France PS 3 version- this should be fun!

Biking and health

I think this video is for PS 3;  I have not tried this but should work well with your PS 3 player, and LCD TV. It must be fun doing this with your stationary training, pretending you are with TDF peloton.

Our bike ride today to Tagaytay (or Alabang)

Biking and health

                                      Allan, Gerry, Weng, and Jorgeus biker

Three of us initiially started out at 6:30 am for Tagaytay this morning:  Cataps, Angel, and me Jorgeusbiker.

Eventually, Weng, the brother of Angel, and Alan caught up with us at the entrance to C6.  We time trialled C6 covering the 10 km distance in about 20 minutes.  Then we bought breakfast at Bicutan and ate in a waiting shed in front of Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig.

After which we rode to Alabang. We covered the dsitance from Bicutan in about l5 minutes.  That is where the bizarre event took place;   Weng and Angel could did not arrive at the assembly point. That was about 8: 15 They had been to Tagaytay several times and they could not have been lost.  We were trying to contact them by cp and no one answered.  Did they get a flat, or were they lost.

We contacted them at about 9:00 and they said they were at Jollibee.  What Jollibee and where?  Allan and Gerry went to Jollibee and I followed and the Balubar brothers were nowhere in sight.

Still waiting.  We made another 3 phone calls. They said they were at Las Pinas;  and we waited.

Then at about l0, they were contacted and said they were allready in Molino.  That was when we decided that the 3 of us would just go home.

And we did ride home fast and furious.  With the short break included to drink buko juice, we covered the Alabang Angono distance in l:05. Another time trial.  The C6 was covered in l5 minutes.

Angel later texted me that they arrived in Tagaytay at 11:22.

Pedal Assisted Electric bikes

Biking and health

Definitely a big help if you get older;  helps combat pollution as you dont need gas and diesel combustion.

Automatic Bicycle Transmissions

Biking and health

Are they now a reality?  Why do I not see many of them?

Chainless Bikes

Biking and health

A new generation of belt driven bikes are coming out;  they are chainless;  are therefore lighter and easier to maintain.

I am posting link to a website for ITV 4.  The information can be worthwhile if you folow TDF.  Videos however are available only at UK for viewing.

It was  day for Brits.  Bradley Wiggins took the Yellow jersey as fellow Chris Froome took the lap victory. He was ahead of last year's victor Cadel Evans by 2 seconds as the latter floundered on the last climb.  Battle between Brits and Australians;  all kings/ queen's  men?
