Tandem Team in the Local News

Posted the original in the 50+ forum, the NorCal forum, and here, since we're multi-category.

Saw that in the Reporter - what is funny is we've never seen you out on the roads around here! It's amazing how many tandems are in the area now. We see a couple on a red Bilinky (I think) every so often and then there's the two bobs - the one with the litespeed and bob and brenda with their CoMo. There's now a few others but i've never met em.

I was thinking the same thing first time I saw your avatar -- who is this guy and why haven't we ridden with him?

Maybe we ought to set up a ride...

We know the Litespeed couple, the Co-Mo couple, then there's racing Greg & his wife on the Cannondale.

The article was in the Daily Republic, by the way. Ironic that we often ride by the Reporter's offices and it takes the next town's paper to find us.

LOL - we get both here at work - I know I saw it in one of those papers, just assumed it was the Reporter

Didn't know Greg and his wife had a tandem - although like Bob and Brenda and the litespeed couple - are much faster than my wife and I.

Do you guys do the club rides? I've been a Monticello club member since 1990 but rarely do the club rides much anymore although i'll get out there every once in a while on Saturdays.

Excellent picture and article! I forwarded the link to other DBC tandemistas, including the ones on our recent ride around the Sutter Buttes. Where are the newspaper photographers when Terry and I are blasting down Pleasants Valley Road?
