2006 Co-Motion Roadster, flat bars, discs and carbon fibre fork, size 22 / 19
2006 Ventana ECDM full suspension mountain tandem
Some single bikes and a couple of KTM's
And most important, someone special that enjoys them with me (except the KTM's)
It's been a while since we've had a good photo of us on a tandem, so going with the "Pictures of Happy Tandem Couples" theme... we're looking pretty happy and almost at the top!!
We were the subjects of a very good art photographer who was taking photographs while in the saddle on the Death Ride. This is climbing Monitor Pass West.

We've had a tough year with my wife (Stoker) in the hospital in the spring and then me spend the better part of a week in the hospital and surgery this fall. But with the breaks aside we met our goal of 1,200 miles last weekend. This is us just home with 1,203 miles, a little damp but feeling good! Now to see what we can do in December.

That's me on the front.
The bike belongs to my stoker.

Good for you. I capt for a blind stoker here in OH as well. It's just a wonderful way to share a ride.
If anybody else is at all curious, have a look at bicyclingblind.org -- a way to connect capt's with stokers. From my own personal perspective, I'd sure recommend it.
Good for you.
Its a Weehoo they now make an alloy version as the steel version is quite heavy. they work really well for small children that no longer want to ride in a trailer and are not quite ready for a trail-a- bike.
Finally getting photos up of us and our Cannondale!
Here are some pics from our November vacation. We live in Wyoming, and took a trip to Texas to visit family. Couldn't resist taking the tandem since we're battling weather up north! Was a beautiful time with my sweetheart of 29 years!
Also Guthrie. Thought you would all like to see one of these signs. I have never seen one in Wyoming! Drivers were all good in all three states we rode in. We wanted to ride in Nebraska also, but the weather turned a bit chilly on the way home!

Two wheels good. Four wheels bad.
I don't have any new pictures, just some back in the late 90's when we did have time to ride together. This was our year old 1996 Santana Sovereign. My stoker was a non cyclist a few months prior, yes we went through much training for her to understand how hard you should push down on the pedals :-). tandem ralley.jpg
Hey crew... we've covered 17,000km over a year on our tandem, between Turkey and Vietnam. Still 10,00km left until home... but still happy!

Here's the only pic we have of us actually riding. All our photos are selfies (arms ain't quite long enough!) We were riding and a friend saw us in time to snap this shot. We love to ride, and spring sure is in the air!
