    Looking back on some of my pics and stuff, I realized we haven't been on the tandem in a while. We go through periods where we ride it a lot and periods where we don't. Mostly depends on how much Gina is riding. When she rides often, it's a joy to ride. When she doesn't, it can be torture ha ha!

    When she is on, we ride local evening rides up and down the hills around home. Quite a workout! Of course you know climbing on the tandem, I sweat more and breath harder ha ha! :D

    This is our midweek ride on the tandem

    But the midweek rides make the longer flatter rides much better. Like this 44 mile ride on the trail. We ended up with a 17.3 average speed over the 44 on this ride. Our best is 18.4 on this same ride. Not bad with the headwinds that always seem to be present. If we ever got in a ride without a killer headwind, I'd probably have a heart attack ha ha! :p

    When you're on a tandem, you make a lot of friends! :D

    I STILL haven't got that Santana tandem out yet. Will do it this Summer, I swear.

    That seems like a nice 44 mile trail. Where is that located?

    I always wanted to buy a tandem so my wife and I could ride together, even came close to pulling the trigger on one, but my wife is just not into cycling and changed her mind about buying one for us.
