Tandem Bike Riding

I often return in thought to my grand time in Florida the last two weeks in January. I never expected that I would get to ride on a tandem bike for all those days - except for a couple, when Don (who is recovering from shoulder surgery) took his turn on Dave's tandem. (scroll down to see). It would be nice when Paul retires if we could buy a tandem to ride together.

Don was experiencing what it was like to be a stoker. He has his own tandem and has a whole harem of female stokers - and a few guys too ride with him. But with his doctor's orders to rest the arm while it heals from his November surgery, he figured, 'what the heck' riding tandem won't hurt anything. He wanted to be down in Florida too and not miss out on the fun - and he didn't miss very many days of riding as there were several with tandems: Doug's, Bill's, Bud's, Dave's, and Mal's. Here's Don riding with Bud S, Dave and Doug. (click on photos to enlarge)
