SuidAfrikaaners aan een tandem koers!!!
Nice post and webpage! Sounds like tandems are finally getting a bit more popular out your way.
Enjoyed reading your instructions on 'how to ride in tandem'. Very well done and it will help newbies immensely.
One minor suggestion on stopping tandem and stoker dismount: we suggest stoker dismounts and WALKS away from the tandem and then says 'OFF'. That way captain can safely dismount and no worry about giving a karate kick to the stoker still hanging on to the tandem.
Enjoy your off road race!

Pedal on TWOgether!
