Hello from Wisconsin

Hi. We are new to the forum. We used to ride bikes a lot, but as Don lost much of his vision due to Retinitis Pimentosa, we stopped riding. Now we bought a tandem so we could both ride with me (Jean) doing the captain's job of steering. It is lots harder to steer that big thing with two people on it than a solo bike. We are enjoying it very much. We are recently retired, and we do the snowbird thing in our RV in Florida, so we hope to take the tandem with us there this winter.

Jean and Don and Dusty Dog.
(Dusty is Don's Leader Dog for the Blind, but he stays home when we ride.)

Hello Jean, Don, and Dusty! It's wonderful to hear that you are still able to bike as a couple, but you need to provide Dusty with a trailer so that all of you can travel around .

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
