Pictures of happy tandem couples?

We should have a sticky thread of you and your captain/stoker having fun on your tandem!

I'll start...

We made it through my Cancer as a team, finished the LiveSTRONG Challenge as a team, but couldn't pull off a low five in the photo-op because she was busy taking her own pictures.

No problem, we had a great ride that day and enjoy a great life together everyday.

Sad to say, I have no pics of my wife and I on our KHS. This is Somebody Else at last Fall's Hilly Hundred.

My littlest stoker. This picture is on the KATY Trail in Missouri. A great state park trail that almost goes the length of the state.

http://www.bikekatytrail.com/

The Burley Zydeco with Piccolo trail bike was our first tandem. It was our ride from 2004-07




In 2008 we upgraded to a Bushnell Triplet from Precision Tandems in Kansas City. http://www.precisiontandems.com/index.html

This picture was taken at the Shark Valley Visitor Center in the Everglades.

My wife would never allow me to ride behind her. And I don't trust myself, either.

I'll post a pic shortly.

The first two were from Cycle Oregon last year - we may not look very happy in the first pic but at that speed we're smiling big inside. Second is from the 27 degree morning leaving Lapine. Third is from he Northwest Tandem Rally in Bend Oregon in 2005.

First pic is from the Davis Bike Club "Tandem Toot" ride around the Sutter Buttes last fall -- the smallest mountain range in the world. The jerseys are from our 2007 DBC March Madness (Mad Marchness?) annual event -- we max our miles in March to raise $$ for kids' bike helmets.

On our way to swim lessons. Turns out nobody ever has a camera when my wife is stoking on Purple Perdition.

I don't have any pictures of us riding. This was after we finished our first tandem ride. Look at that smile, she was hooked.
