This is becoming a regular thing, it seems. A week ago we did a two-tandem ride with Dallas (photogravity) and Rachel who were in New England for vacation, and I posted a thread about it. Well, on one their rides this week they were stopped by someone who turned out to be half of another tandem team. They planned a ride for today, and Dallas asked if we wanted to join them. So today we rode a bit under 40 miles with Dallas and Rachel and Dan and Chanda, six people on six wheels!
Some of the ride today covered roads we'd taken Dallas and Rachel on last weekend, some were on roads new to us. We got wet for a bit. I thought about naming this thread Six people, Six wheels, Six zillion water molecules. It was humid, and then it rained and made us reconsider the far reaches of the planned loop. Nevertheless we covered some good ground, had a great time, had a nice picnic (the important part), and took some pics.
