Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Yeah, I saw that on Wikipedia. No biggie; just thought I'd ask.

Serious question. There are a couple Scots on another board that have posted several pics of them resting and drinking tea with a kettle on a little stove. They aren't touring or anything; just taking a break.
There's room for my hiking stove and billy in the bag. I don't tend to take it with me for cycling. If I'm desperate for a cup of tea or a coffee I'll stop at a cafe.

I saw a custom bike that was made for BBQing. The handlebar was customized so it could hold a propane grill. He carried the grill, the food and equipment usual style on a rear cargo rack.

I don't get it, greasy hotdogs, bugers, and sausages are last foods I want during my ride. Nothing like feeling bloated and having ****s during a ride.

Don't know much about film cameras, but maybe something like a Kodak Brownie would have been era-appropriate.

Didn't you tell us at some point that your dad flew bombers? Those would be some amazing photos.

Or even 620 film. which is the same size film as 120 but with different spools. you can (in a darkroom) roll modern 120 film onto 620 spools to use in a vintage camera.

As for medium format cameras (the roll film cameras using a bigger film than 35mm) they ranged from very basic box cameras such as Kodak Brownies, Agfa Clacks to professional cameras such as Hasselblad 500s or Mamiya C33s.

Don't start. We hear that once about every third ride, more often on a group ride.

So do you have an IPS on your tandem?

No and never will. My wife and I have ridden tandems since 1983 and are perfectly in tune, synced, and can read each other's mind... most of the time.

Seriously, I've never understood IPS but then again, my wife and I are both high mileage riders with a similar cadence and endurance level. I guess pairs who can't mesh might benefit from IPS but I never could figure out how they don't get backlash in their pedaling. Still, IPS is common on DaVinci tandems and they seem to sell fine.

Today's obligatory rest stop pic. This our newest tandem. We've had 5.

As a pollen sufferer, I log it and compare it to how I feel. Tells me if the meds are working.

I thought all of your rain was supposed to come in the winter. Or, maybe I'm thinking of SoCal. You're more north, aren't you?

This has been the Mother of all Rainy Seasons! We're still getting rain and snow in the north. I'm sick and tired of the dreary weather.

Our March was that way but April has been pretty nice. We have had above average temps and the rain has been mostly overnight thunderstorms so it hasn't affected the riding much. Wind has been pretty bad, though.

This year we have had it all--snow, hail, rain, atrocious winds, thunderstorms; blizzards; you name it. I don't mind riding in rain or cold or snow. But I ride on narrow and very steep roads and what I am mostly concerned with is black ice.

I am ready for the sun and some warmth now.

Yes. We did need all of this rain for sure.

Seriously--just SEEING the sun in that pic up above was enough to lift my spirits . . .

Lol, I assumed you both did.

It's great to see some couples who can really make it work on a tandem.

Mine would want to captain, but isn't comfortable in traffic.
