Having a baby is a peak experience, life-altering event for the people invovled; it is a common, frequent, and mostly uninteresting event for humanity as a whole.
We rode our very first century (actually 108 miles) yesterday. We're very proud of ourselves. Just over a year ago, we nearly expired after our first 1/5th century. We've learned a lot and ridden some miles.
Along the way we met a bunch of nice folks and saw maybe a dozen other tandems with all combinations of captains/stokers. We even stopped for a brief Speedster convention. We've decided (actually have been convinced by our bodies) to take a rest day today. Props to those of you who do this routinely, and thanks to the BF Tandem board for remote mentoring.
