Newbie at this site...
Greetings from the High Desert in California....
Although new to this forum, not so new to road and indoor riding. I've been taking and teaching indoor cycling (spinning) for approximately 8 years, and decided last year to feel the wind in my face. I bought a KHS Flite 300 as an intro bike and trained for my first Century (Lake Tahoe) through Team in Training for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. While training I met some of the most amazing people and became intrigued with tandem riding. Turns out my husband was likewise intrigued and bought us a Cannondale RT3000. I just completed my second Century (Cool Breeze) and am ready to put aside my single bike for a bit and get some serious mileage under the wheels on the tandem. So far the info on your site for both single riders and tandems is wonderful and I can't wait to delve in further.
Hung up the indoor bike (so to speak) because it turns out that I am addicted to the wind in my face.
Thanks for the forum - hope to see some of you on the road!
Welcome to the forums intense pedaler, I just so happen to be from california aswell. San francisco area I'm glad biking has become a positive influence in your life. I hope to be able to do some centuries some day, but I'm a mere 19 years of age and still in my lazy phase have a great day.
With a tandem you have an opportunity to take some good videos. Then use them in spinning classes.
An idea I hadn't given any thought to, but thanks it's a great suggestion. So many people have said they would try a class if there was a video; something to more simulate an actual ride. Thanks for the response.
I have gone down Cajon Pass and both sides of the I-5 Grapevine on bikes. Play that at realtime for a spinning class and watch them try to keep up
