Blogs and other website about tandems

I've been reading this forum for a while and keep an eye on Tandem Geek's blog but thought I'd ask what other sites and blogs are out there covering tandems or regularly feature tandems. Winter-time gets boring without some distractions so I thought I'd check to see what you are reading. I also love seeing pictures of other teams tandems and outings they've taken.

Tandem blogs

Paul, we have a few blogs online about our tours. If you are interested let me know and I will send you the links. I don't understand why this forum requires 50 posts before one can send a private message, but I did send you my e-mail address before.I have been riding most days,but the stoker likes it a bit warmer so the tandem languishes.Take care , Paul

I'm in the same boat as car knocker, apparently now you have to have 50 posts before you can send a pm.

Car knocker, take a look at www.blayleysblogspot.com. They post interesting tandem articles from time to time.

Yay! Just got my post count up to 41, 9 more to go!

Hi, Paul! Like you, I'm always looking for other great blogs to follow. My husband and I ride tandem for randonnneuring and bike touring. I maintain a blog that includes these (as well as my single bike) adventures and you can find it at www.chasingmailboxes.com. The "Bike Touring" and "Randonneuring" categories are primarily posts about our tandem riding.

Just started reading a well designed website about a young French couple on a tandem (with panniers and a trailer - they don't travel light). They've been thru Europe and Asia, and just reached Los Angeles this month. They'll be touring US and Canada.

“The bicycle is a very good way to discover the country because we are very slow and we meet a lot of people,” said Voinchet.
