What a day to be alive.....

Dear tandem people…

I hope everyone had weather as perfect for riding as we did here in Maryland yesterday - mid-70’s not too humid, light breeze from the west, sunny and clear!

I got out for a light workout after work with stoker #1 and we got in a one and one-half hour tour through Baltimore County horse country. Attached is a photo of Bluemount Rd., heading west (down)! Stoker was a bit tired so we ditched the ‘up’ side and took the NCR rail trail back to our point of beginning.

Hope everyone had a good day too!

Nice! Our tandem arrived this week. Still need to put some stoker pedals on & tweak the front brakes. Plans for the long weekend are to put some miles on that mother. I can't wait! Weather is likely to be hot & sticky here, but for September in MN, I'll take it. We'll just have to keep the 'breeze' up.

Halfbiked,

I think that tandem would go further and faster if you put some pedals on it!
