Have You (pilot) Ridden the Tandem Solo?
If yes, how much faster/slower were you compare to when you rode with your stoker (on your usual route)?
PMK's how fast thread got me wondering... :)
When we ride, my stoker always claims that she put in over half of the energy to get us from A to B. Though, of course, since we have ICS, I have often caught her eating: ie. peeling oranges, chomping on apples, munching on whatever (carrot sticks, raisins, grapes, etc). I rarely eat while in the saddle, and I don't mind her doing so, but her claim had me rofl :))
Anyhow, our usual time for our ride is 3 hrs.
One day, I had the chance to ride the tandem solo on the same route. My time 1hr 30 min.
We had a good laugh over that, and now she brings only one pocketful of fruits instead of two.
