First metric century on the tandem!

It was my sweetie's request after letting me ride the Masi yesterday. How could I say no? 62.6 miles.

I put a pic in the Happy Couples thread.

I need a lower gear to stand up from the dinner table.

Well done! The way to tell if the bug has bitten you is, Of course you feel tired but do you feel more accomplished than exhausted? Keep up the good riding.

Jim, you and Sharon are an inspiration.

Jim is not kidding when he calls his wife a "sweetie." I can attest she really is!
