My First Tandem Ride
I recently met a guy who has a tandem and we went for a ride today. It was great! Being the stoker, I didn't know if I would be able to give up control. He is an experienced captain so I had no problem following his lead.
When riding solo I clip in first with my left foot, he is the opposite so I had to change to match him. At first it felt odd, but I got used to it.
The only big problem is that I like to ride the drops sometimes, which I couldn't do on the tandem or my nose would have been in his butt. I also didn't feel comfortable reaching down for my water bottle. Next time I'll have to take my camel back.
We rode very well together for the first time. I'm hoping the weather holds and we can get in a few more rides before the snow flies.
