    Tandem Partner!?

    If anyone like to try a tandem here in S. Cal., leave a response. It can be an awesome experience.
    Its a road tandem which I ride anywhere and all distance.

    Does anyone else think this sounds like a personal ad that is too good to be true?

    I don't think so.. I think the Poster is a visually impaired rider, so serious replies would be warranted..

    The screen name combined with the post is what got me.

    Years ago I heard about an organization called Eye Cycle that provides tandem "captains" for visually impaired riders.

    This person has posted many times before with the same question and then abandons the thread. Not sure what's going on with that.

    Hey guys, this girl is legit. I have done 3 rides with her, but I can't get down to West LA as often as she'd like to ride. If anyone else wants to give piloting a try, send her a PM and let me know if she doesn't respond in a week, then I'll give her a call in case she hasn't checked her PMs.

    Her goal is to ride a century this year. So far, she and I have done 55 miles to the Palos Verdes Switchbacks and back. Our next step up is 50 miles in the santa Monica mountains.
