The Tour de France bicycle race rode through the town of Preuilly-sur-Claise, about an hour south of Saint-Aignan, this past week. Preuilly is where new friends of ours, Susan and Simon, live. Their blog is called Days on the Claise. Simon blogged about the passage du Tour here.
Simon invited us down to see the Tour ride through, but we couldn't go. However, we did watch it on TV and we recorded it. The nice thing about the France2 TV coverage of the Tour de France is all the aerial photography of beautiful French countryside and villages. Preuilly-sur-Claise was no exception.
I made this movie by putting my digital camera on a tripod and aiming it at the TV screen. I played segments of the recording of the Tour we made and voilà — a little editing in Quicktime and there you have it.
P.S. I just watched it after uploading, and the quality is not great. I think I need to look for a different way to post video clips. That'll give me something to do this morning.
