" - a "round" on rollers ---" M/S of girl riding a bicycle on some rollers - an early version of an exercise bike perhaps as it doesn't go anywhere. Two friends stand and watch. M/S of a girl balanced on another of these stationary bicycles. She has her arm around a man's shoulders. He wears a cycling jersey with the word "Bianchi" printed on it.

    A crowd stand and watch them. The girl leans forward and begins to cycle. "Vibro machines of every sort, for every sort of muscle treatment." M/S of woman wrapping a strap around her arm. It is attached to a machine which makes it vibrate. Other girls sit on the grass and watch. Another woman has a go at the same machine, this time with the strap around her waist.
