Not new to cycling but new to this forum...liking what I've read so far.
I ride a '06 Specialized dolce comp, and stoke a Raleigh Coupe tandem with my hubby, who *is* new to cycling. We bought the tandem in Oct. '06 so he could share the fun. We're planning our first tandem century next month in Palm Springs, then Solvang in March, and probably the Chico Wildflower in April. By then the really good flying weather will start, and he'll go back to hang gliding & I'll spend more time solo.
Last year my girlfiriend & I rode 5 centuries -- we love 'em -- hope to do one a month through October.
Looking forward to lots of bike talk!
