Last Saturday we rode our new (to us) El Conquistador de Montanas to a neighbor's house. He had created a cyclocross course on his 10 or so acre property, and invited the road racers from our local Wheelmen club to join him for a night of informal racing.
"When are you guys going home to get your 'cross bikes?" "We think we'll ride this."
"I'd like to watch you get thru those hairpin switchbacks in the woods." "Just watch us"
We won First Tandem! (yeah, I know) We were voted worthy of a great prize (dozen farm raised eggs from their flock of fancy Copper Maran chickens - beautiful dark chocolate covered shells). It was a lot of fun, and we're looking forward to more adventures on this mountain tandem.
