Saddling Up With The Mrs.

Laura wanted to start her training last night so I set up the trainer with her hybrid and I set the rollers up next to her. I nearly killed myself on the rollers a couple times so I disposed of the rollers and set up the other trainer and rode a half hour with her.

I don't know about you other married-types, but I love the fact that my wife wants to ride more with me this summer and really give it a good effort to get in shape for the riding season. The tandem purchase last summer was painful ($$$) but I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat to be able to ride more with her and the kids from time to time.

Her big goal for the summer is to ride the MS Bike Tour (Go Team Road Kill!). For most of us, that seems minor, but Laura's long ride so far is a little over 30 so it's a pretty major goal for her and I'm proud of her for committing.

For those of you in the area, watch out for the big blue tandem express this summer. Not only will it get considerable mileage training with Laura and the family, you might see a certain CDV on it as well as we are in serious discussions about doing the Gut Check on tandem.

Hey Laura, You go girl! But I wouldn't worry about training too hard - Kevin can't drop you on the tandem! Cathy
