Live Tour de PEI Coverage

I’ve got our Apple iSight camera sticking out the front window, pointed at the corner of Prince and Richmond Streets in downtown Charlottetown where, in a few hours from now, preparations — road blocks and who knows what else — should spring into life for the Tour de PEI cycle race that’s taking over the neighbourhood for the day. I’ll just leave the camera running:

[The race is over — no more live video!]

Note that: time displayed in the video window is Pacific Time, which is 4 hours earlier than the local time here; audio is on, but you won’t hear much through the window; if you visit the stream’s page at Ustream you can chat with other viewers.

Apparently to get the cyclists sufficiently jazzed up requires the playing of very loud music, to the point where my house is shaking.

That was in the fine print in the mailer, I suppose.

Thanx Peter, you’re certainly making up for the Government’s webcam that has been stuck on 2:09:28 since, well… 2:09:28

I didn’t know what time it was on and I guess I was occupied with other things during the entire event. I missed the whole thing! Waaaah!

Hi Peter,
Any chance the Ruk Cam will be watching the Tour’s Charlottetown leg this year?
