Walking back to the car after the opening stage of the Tour Down Under tonight, a tandem flashed past with the lady on the back waving to everyone and smiling. Nothing weird in that except that she was FACING BACKWARDS!
This tandem had been built with the rear cockpit facing backwards - bars, seat, the works. I guess she had to pedal backwards as well and they had a fair old cadence going.
Cripes it looked funny.
