After years of riding a single, I took a short ride on a tandem, and I didn't want to get off, it was fun and I had someone to talk to. Now I own a tandem, which
makes me an old rider and a new captain. I believe in McCready's ( Mr. Santana) dictum: The stoker is always right. My SO does not bike, so I am soliciting comments from stokers about what makes riding most comfortable for them. I know communication is key, but what
other attributes of a captain are desirable ? For example, I mention when I am going to shift, stop, or coast. And about every 25 miles, tired or not, we get off to stretch our legs.
I would like to hear some from stokers out there,
I am all ears. Thanks
