I was lusting after a sub-25 lb Co-Motion but couldn’t justify the price (yet) :rolleyes: Any other tandem riders in here?
Favorite rides? Occasionally, we’ll hook up with other tandems for a group ride thru Hidden Valley or Somis but most of the time we’ll improvise our own loops thru nearby areas. Did the Cool Breeze last year for my first century - that was a fun route. Favorite trails? Local stuff like Sycamore, Chesebro and Backbone come to mind, but I think Gooseberry's still my all-time fav. Rode it many years ago and would love to get back there again.
Wife’s out of town (out of the country, actually) this weekend so I’ll be riding the City of Angels ride solo. Also planning on doing the 68-miler at the Cruisin’ the Conejo. If you see a blue ’dale tandem out there, it just might be us. Be sure and say ‘hi’ as you pass by.
Welcome to the insanity :p
