I enjoy watching this thread and the pictures are great. However, when the interchange between a couple of members turns to a personal interchange that does not involve the general readership, perhaps private e-mails or instant messaging would be more appropriate. Just my opinion.
There are 10 kinds of people ... those that understand binary and those that don't.
This photos was taken during the Spring Santana Tandem Ralley while returning from Tombstone Arizona.
Finally some pictures of us in motion! Last weekend's 100km (no 107k, no 110k) populaire.
Still smiling at the end, success in my book! (Notice the cue sheet clothes-pinned to my back; a tip learned here that worked pretty well.)
Just after 6:40 PM at mile 153 or so, on top of Mount Hamilton during the Devil Mountain Double (206 miles apx 19000 feet of climbing).
Fun is Social Circle.
Seven teams getting ready to start this years Palm Springs ride. The last few years we've done 55 which gives us plenty of time for socializing around the pool.

PS - The route data isn't mine, but the guy had the same ride time as us despite difference pacing on climbs and descents.... go figure.

Hot spring day in the Bay area following short R/T to watch son's triathlon. Note stoker/exec management badly out of phase. Only had a tandem for 3 weeks, but this sure is fun.
Volagi - Triple"ized" and Tubeless
daVinci Joint Venture
We have only had our tandem for two weeks but absolutely LOVE it. Here is a picture of us on Toronto Island enjoying the sunshine. Sometimes my wife will be stoker and our 10 year old (stoker in the picture) will ride solo and navigate. Either way, we get lots of smiles and comments, and hear people counting out loud as we go by...one...two....three....four.......there's FOUR people on that bike!
Our new toy. Had a great weekend and rode it all three days.
Trek Fuel XC MTB, Giant OCR Road Bike, Rans Screamer - Tandem
Our first four-day trip on our tandem, from Springfield, IL to Joliet, IL along the old Route 66.
The bike held up nicely, until the rear tire blowout that is.
Picture was taken at the restored Standard Oil gas station in Odell, IL
This shot was totally the stoker's idea.
