Nice weekend ride on the bike path with some friends, hot days right now trying to beat the heat. We all left early and it was still hot as heck. What can I say after 15 or 16 years of tandem riding with my wife Julie other than we still love it.
Ride Safe Everyone,
Co-Motion Custom Primera Tandem (AKA The Marrage Counselor)
da Vinci Custom Joint Venture 700 Tandem (AKA The Marrage Therapist)
Took a trip from Texas to visit Alex at MTB Tandems | Home and test ride some new mt. tandems. We decided on a new DC-9 Fandango in Grinch green color. We headed north to camp at Unicoi State Park. This pic is just before a ride from local shop called Woody's Mountain Bikes.
Sad but we will be putting the Cannondale MT3000 up for sale. We bought this to test the off road riding and it has been / and is a great bike. It is a 1998 model.

Any bike trip for ice cream makes me happy
Sharing photos from Chris (Christoph Timm) provided via Tandem@Hobbes:
Does riding stairs qualify as riding off-road? We often use our Tour Terrain Singletrailer to take our youngest son (2) on rides in the woods, but recently I wanted to try if it is capable of providing its passenger with comfort and safety even down a short set of stairs. Thus, on the way to an ice cream stop I just gave it a try. Our son never stopped singing and didn't really seem to care, and even his mother taking the picture now agrees that the suspension does work well.

Trying out the tandem teeter totter at Morgan Monroe State Forest today.
Didn't feel totally in control in the captain's position.

From the Amishland & Lakes ride - August 5th
At least the "rear admiral" seems happy...
not a couple, but me and my friend are happy. The tandem gets ridden once a year, 100 miles. It's a fun things to do after a long season.
My 13 yr old son and I at the start of our first s24o. We left from our home and went about 30 miles to the san onofre state beach campground. It was definitely a great first bike camping experience.
One of our regular rides: drive to Old Town Folsom and ride the American River Bike Trail all the way down into Old Town Sacramento. Have lunch and beverages at Fannie Anne's Saloon. Then decide if we are going to be macho and ride back... or if we are going to be relaxed and take the light rail train back. This one is in front of the Pony Express memorial in Old Sacramento...

(we're on the low rung)
You could fall off a cliff and die.
You could get lost and die.
You could hit a tree and die.
OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.
another year. another seagull century in the books for walmart tandem!
My wife and I somehow became the cover stars for this year's Will Bike 4 Food event in Hatfield, MA. See us in action here: https://www.foodbankwma.org/events/bike/
We ride a Burley Rock and Roll mountain bike tandem with road tires.
It was our first organized ride, and a lot of fun.
Here's another photo:

Cookin' on the aerobars: Lighthouse Century. We can make up a lot of the time we lose on the climbs with those things. Beautiful day, fun ride.
