Have some custom wheels built by someone who knows what they're doing. I've got Mavic Open Pros with 105 hubs 32f/36r that have given me zero problems. They're light and strong.

I've used cyclocross tires on my Santana Arriva while riding on hardpack. It has V brakes and drop bars. I'm sure there are many other tandems that you can do this with.

Our local Rail Trail was proposed to cut through some farmland, and then ended up going around the edge of it as opposed to straight through. A good compromise.
