New Toy/First Ride

Coming back from Watertown we stopped in Spoke-N-Sport just to "try out" a tandem to see if my wife would like it. Well...she did. I told them to put a different seat on for my wife as well as better pedals and we would take it for a spin after a trip to Famous Dave's. Over lunch, it didn't take much to convince her that this was probably the future of our touring together. She's always been "the driver" on my biking excursions, but I'm hoping that this will change all that.

The First Excursion (of any measurable distance)



I'm very proud of Laura as she is giving this a serious go. We still have a (almost) four year old at home, so we will not be able to ride a lot, but she seemed excited to be able to ride WITH me. They say a Tandem is either very good or very bad for relationships. So far, so good!

Woo-hoo! So is Laura the stoker? (I always forget which is which) and you're right, I was told "whicever way your marriage is headed when you buy a tandem, it will get you there that much faster".
