Gravel with a Tandem
 
This thread kinda belongs in two forums (Gravel & Tandem) ... But I put it here.

I've ridden more gravel miles than I can count, but yesterday was a leap into the unknown!

We got our Co Motion Java at the end of August, and spent a few weeks making adjustments ... at the start line of The Filthy 50, we'd logged less than 100 miles on this bike (or any real tandem).

We did a lot of learning along the roads around of Lanesboro and loved the sights of this Amish community in Southern Minnesota. We enjoyed great weather with clear skies and temps in the 70s (very warm of Oct in MN), we even got strong tailwinds for the last few miles.

Here's our Java at the finish line taproom.

Wither you get in the gravel or not... That's a nice bike!

Thanks!

2019 was harsh!

2018 was worse ... IMHO ... cold and sleet right from the start

2021 conditions were like a whole different universe from '18 & '19!
