Our first picture riding the tandem
It's taken in France on our favorite campsite.

We're riding a low budget Dutch tandem which i tuned a litte, it's lots of fun

bertjeconti, wecome to BF!

This is a medium-budget (I guess) French bike ('82 Peugeot) which I rebuilt a few years ago. The pic is from last week. We've ridden it over 3000 miles.

Try again - this time with the picture.
This was taken during the 2012 New Forest sportive - a 22% hill and we refused to yield - quite why my wife was smiling is not known - she was in oxygen debt at the time!

Not sure - we went down for the sportive - all I know was that I saw the gradient click up and up to over 20% at one point, lots of solo cyclists gave up and we chucked in the kitchen sink in the granny and literally just made it!

This photo (not us) encompasses the shear joy of tandem racing so much I had to post it...



Any guesses what the stoker is so intensely yelling?

when your stoker of 28 years decides your tandem pictures are getting boring ...

Just be creative ...
