Bona fide tandem crew checking in
After a couple of very successful test rides the Missus and I have invested in a new tandem. We plunked some dough on a Cannondale. It's the dark blue version of the bike shown here
The Missus and I know that a few test rides, however successful, do not guarantee success in the long run. But we've been around each other long enough and know each other well enough to know that tandeming is a terrific way to spend time together.
We'll take a nice ride tomorrow but then she's off for a few weeks to care for a family member. Then, in early August, she will undergo a foot operation that likely will take her out of action for a few weeks. We'll be lucky if we get in 1 or 2 organized rides this year, probably no more than 60 miles. But that's OK as we see this as a long-term investment. We'll still have plenty opportunities to ride in the fall months and into Nov and Dec.
So, to the Tandem Forums gang, get used to hearing from us more. We appreciate all the valuable input from this community.
