OK, first I must ask you all to keep this post a secret from my wife...She would kill me.
Let me start by saying that she is far more adventurous than me. Heck, she even suggested that our next journey be by bicycle. But our level of cycle fitness is...well...different. Don't get me wrong, she's in exceptional physical condition. It's just....well....she's a bit slower than me.
Not only that...Also, she's an evening person, and I am up first thing in the morning ready to go. And she likes to stop every few minutes to adjust her helmet, or put on her gloves, or take off her gloves, or wipe her glasses, or put on sunscreen, or lip balm, or...well you get the picture.
And, as you can probably tell, I am somewhat deficient in the patience department.
So....for all you experienced cycle travelers out there....when traveling with someone else, how do you keep from killing one another? Surely you must have come up with some techniques. Do you each go at your own pace and meet up along the way? Do you stick together no matter what? Do you have a mantra that brings inner peace when you feel like screaming bloody murder? Do you just give in to temptation and scream bloody murder?
Any words of wisdom would be appreciated. You may just save a marriage.
