After our fall and my concussion a couple of weeks ago on our tandem, Mrs. Grouch had an MRI. The diagnosis is "chronic small vessel syndrome" which affects her balance. She has an appointment with a neurologist in about 3 weeks but will see if she can get in sooner.
We have a week long bike tour scheduled for June. She is talking about taking my single recumbent and her tadpole trike, but I'm not sure I want to go if we can't ride the tandem.
Obviously we haven't heard what the neurologist thinks so we're short on facts, but I'm already in mourning. We've ridden tandem bicycles together since 1976. That has been a big part of our lives. I'm not ready to give up tandemming and, if we have to, I have no idea how to replace it.
