@Angel -- thanks for the welcome. We'll be on the tandem forum quite a bit, I imagine.
@StephenH -- thanks for the link; I just joined the group (still need to send in the membership check, tho).
@2vinci -- well, that is encouraging! We just obtained our tandem a week ago, and this weekend took it out on two rides. We got in 50+ miles between the two of them. Not bad for our first time(s) out. We had a blast. We're fortunate to live right next door to the Air Force Academy, which is a terrific place to train. Our plan is to gradually build on the miles each weekend -- and maybe sneak in some weekday rides to go with our weekday indoor-cycling sessions -- between now and RtR. Our final "hard ride" before the tour will be the 62-mile loop on the Elephant Rock, one week before the start of RtR.
