In addition to watching football, Reg also loved to watch bike racing, especially the Tour de France. Although I wouldn’t watch every race with him, I watched most of them. If I happened to be outside or in the other room while he watched, and a horrific crash occurred, he would call me into the room to see it. I always enjoyed watching the races, but he was much more into bike racing than I was.
Now, however, I watch almost all of the races. The interesting thing is I can’t even tell you at this point if I like bike racing or not. I think I do, but it’s so intrinsically linked to Reg that I wouldn’t even know how to figure out if I like it myself. Do I like bike racing, or do I just watch it because we always did? To me, it has become a blur between him and me. It definitely brings some consistency to my life though.
