It’s hard to believe the last time we were on the tandem bicycle was January 2nd!
I’ve been out a couple of times on my own bike since then for some short rides from the house and did a few sessions on the E-Motion rollers and CycleOps Fluid2. However, those always fall well short of the mark when it comes to the sheer enjoyment that we get spending time together riding two-up, especially on the tandem bikes.
As much as we enjoy motorcycling, unless it’s a really long and epic ride of a few hundred miles it just doesn’t hold a candle to the gratification we get from riding our tandems. You just don’t get a great sense of accomplishment after a 50 mile ride on a motorcycle like you do on the tandem.
I’m so very thankful that I’m lucky enough to have the lovely Miss Debbie as my best friend since she’s always up for both! Of course, when the thermometer tickles the 60’s and the sun in shinning it’s a lot easier to get her excited about heading off for a ride. Today was definitely one of those days! We’re hoping for another one tomorrow and maybe, just maybe I’ll be able to coax her into riding the Ventana off-road tandem on our local trail!!!!
