tandembike in the himalaya movieclip

Hello,

I found a short movie clip about cycling on the highest road in the world. If you are interested you can see it here http://www.metacafe.com/watch/286163..._in_the_world/
It looks very nice, and they are riding a tandembike!!!

Greetings,

Marden.

wow, quite a rig they're sporting. I'm guessing they get more than 2 weeks vacation.

Fantastic video. Check out the elevation. There is not much air at 18,000 feet.

FYI: these people are Dutch (like me). The bike is a Vittorio tandem with a trailer by Radical Design. The bike is traditionally made out of steel with long lasting components like V brakes and 8-speed gearing and all. Dennis & Marijcke also have their own website. Their motto: "He who travels a lot is seldom at home" Nice folks really!

They have extremely nice photos in their albums. Alot of sky and landscap shots. Do they do any photography professionally?
