Colo. greetings from forum newbie/tandem stoker

Although we've put over 21,000 miles on our tandem, I've never looked at forums like this before - never considered "biking" and "online" in the same thought. I am impressed with the sheer breadth of experience and willingness to help I see here. It is exciting to listen and learn.

My captain builds websites and I am a writer - we hop on our tandem when we both need a break from screen-gazing. We enjoy exploring Colorado's Front Range mostly on bike trails, with occasional forays on-road.

Just logged our first 50 mile day last week.
That's half way to this season's century-day goal ... never thought a non-athlete like me would be even considering 100 miles in one day on a bike, let alone striving toward it! But the tandem changed all that!

Welcome. I'm impressed with the number of miles you've logged. Especially that most of it is off road. I had no idea there were off-road tandems. Switching to the road should make 100 miles in a day a lot easier.

Good luck,

In search of what to search for.

Hello WriterStoker, I've heard of MTB tandems, but they are something I have yet to see in person. What make is it?
