Hey we finally have a picture for this thread! We did a small organized ride the day after our wedding reception. This is us riding back to our hotel on our trusty Rodriguez

Rudy and Kay/zonatandem
They are truly missed.

At the Tucson swap a few years ago, I bought a box full of cycling shorts from Rudy. I think that was the last time I saw him.

At a recent GABA bike swap they had a display with their riding jackets and other memorabilia. A person stated that they both had passed. I know that Kay had stopped riding by 2019. I'd love to be wrong and that the person gave me incorrect info and they're still around, but my current Tucson contacts aren't returning my messages at the moment.

Saturday's Filthy 50 was amazing. We had beautiful clear skies and the autumn colors were on full display!
The temps were cool, starting around 45F ... and stayed chilly most of the ride warming up to the mid 50s. The big challenge was the wind ... 10-15 mph winds outta the west all day, with gusts getting to 20-25 mph. Somehow there was never a nice tailwind, just lots of crosswinds and some brutal headswinds to keep it spicy!
The other change was the soft gravel, there was very little hero gravel to be found. And the limestone dust was so fine and covered everything. After the ride, I looked like Pigpen taking off my socks.
One of my favorite parts of the day is that it's a gravel family reunion. We saw so many friends at the start, on the route, and at the finish party.
Stats: we finished the 50-mile & 4,200 ft course in 4:47, that's 6 minutes faster than last year (I was hoping with all our experience on the tandem, we'd have been much faster). With a bigger field of tandems this year, we were 4th of 7 tandem teams. Overall we finished 416th place, moving up 42 places overall from last year & a larger field finished... 588 finishers this year and 541 last year. So based on the rankings, everyone was slowed by the conditions, and I don't feel bad about being just a little faster this year.
The bike is our 2021 Co Motion Java - our30th anniversary gift to each other.
Trenton and team put on another amazing The Filthy 50 ... THANK YOU!

A video, as opposed to a photo, but two happy tandem couples:

This was after the Mount Dora cycle fest in central Florida where us coastal Floridians learned a little about hills.

I did confirm with Greg Yares this week that Rudy and Kay have both passed away recently after living very full lives.

As stated earlier, they will be missed.

Here's one of the family in 2011 from the Loop 303 freeway opening with our Santana and the trailercycle. The kid's taller than me now, and the trailercycle's been sold to another user, but we still have the Santana.
