Yes our tandem has a name.... two names in fact namely :

1. Tandem 4 ....means me and my wife the bank and the building society .......just joking !!!!!!!! it was the only email address I could find.

2. Spirit of MAIA - A combination of the first letters of the two tandem pairs who are our inspiration and who taught us almaost all we know of tandem racing.

Doc McGarry is this amayhaps a tandem thing to name our bikes!!!!!

Keep those wheels spinning!!!!!

There was a discussion about this not too long ago. Try doing a search.
