Coming Back!

After a 12 year lay off, we have been embarrassed back into riding by our old friends Ron and Dot Jesser who just celebrated 50 years of marrage.

We sold all but two of our bikes when we moved to Prescott Arizona years ago. We sold my Colnago and our Kuwahara Tandem. Since then, the two remaining bikes have been collecting dust. Our friends Ron and Dot, now near 70, have been back on their tandem. Turns out Ron has kept our old tandem all these years knowing we would someday come back! He called us and said to come and get it!

We are now up to nearly 10 mile rides on our singles. Seems a long way from all the singles, double and occasional triples of years past. It's starting all over again. Oh the pain! I sewar I heard my fanny say,"You're not going to try and put me through this again are you?"

Ordered a Draftmaster to carry the Kuwahara back to AZ and looking forward to re-discovering the great fun we used to have.

Thanks for having a great forum to visit.
