    Mind you that guy rode 4 passes with his "partner". over 10,000 ft of climbing.

    Seems some club does this every year with different members rotating as the captain.

    They put a radio speaker in the "stoker" and another fellow riding behind has a radio microphone and he makes funny comments which sound like their coming from the "stoker".

    Makes the ride more fun.

    I think a bit of ingenuity and some stepper motors or R/C servos might allow the stoker to also signal gear change requests by banging its head against the rider's back.

    Perhaps he missed seeing this indicator on his bike computer...
