Our Local Seaside resort is having a Bike Fest this weekend. Various aspects of cycling including a 30/50/100 mile road event- Some Criterium road racing- Fun rides for the family- Mountain biking- Skill tests and a Time trial.
I was thinking about entering the 50 miler with my neighbour and at my current level of fitness that would push me to my limits with the amount and severity of the hills. On top of that my neighbour is borrowing my hills bike so I have an easy let out. My Son in Law has an easy let out in participating too as he has a stinking cold. He was going to try the "Come and Try it Time Trial"
So my me and a few friends are going to go down on the MTBs and just watch and encourage some of the other participants. But something happened this afternoon. Could put it down to the nice pleasant weather in the back garden while I was preparing the bikes- or the fact that I have had a bit of Brain Fade.
That "Come and Try it TT" still has a pull for S-i-L and instead of preparing the hardtail- I got the Tandem out. At a joint suggestion we are going to try and get an entry into this event. What makes it so stupid is the fact that I have agreed to be stoker.
Link to the event is below and I think I can see a let out in that the rider has to do it unassisted but---This is a fun event. They will take allcomers of any ability on any bike. A Full Offroad Tandem with two unfit riders on it would give a nice easy target for everyone else to aim at.
