First time on a tandem on the Otago Rail Trail
My wife and I are planning a 3 day ride from Clyde to Middlemarch on the Otago Rail Trail in December, 2012.
I am a seasoned bike tourist and should have no problem with the 30 miles a day. My wife, while in good physical shape, is not much of a bike rider. To remedy this, we have decided to rent a tandem and ride this trail.
We have never ridden a tandem and I am wondering if there is anything about the Otago Trail that would make this a bad idea for a first time ride on a tandem.
Any other information about riding on the Otago Trail would be appreciated, as well.
