Gave a co-worker a lift into work today.

Gotta love the Xtracycle, a buddy needed a ride into work today so he could pedal home a bike he was buying so I mentioned there was space on the snap deck. He had a blast and we got some interesting looks and passed a group of cyclist who called it a cheater tandem.
