From Mary B. In Chicago Comes This Video Treat… (Unrelated to Tandems)

We have amassed an amazing collection of friends and acquaintances that spans the globe where the common thread is tandem cycling.  On any given week we’ll get a couple Emails that cover everything from figuring out who’s attending which rallies so that we can all converge for a reunion to just plain silly stuff.

This is one of the just plain silly things that one of our friends from the Chicago area, Mary of “Mary & Marvin”, passed along.  Now, let me the first one to admit, others have suggested I have way too much free time (or simply don’t sleep much) given the amount of time I invest (aka, fritter away) in publishing and posting tandem related content on the Web. However, this gentleman from Portland, Oregon clearly trumps me with this video in grand fashion.  Quoting from the YouTube summary,

A Portland bike commuter and dedicated Tour De France fan gets up early to watch the TDF live, but as the stage ends he realizes he is going to be late to work. His exciting “race” to work is narrated by Tour de France TV commentators Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwin.



About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
