Five hours of sleep last night! And I was pretty relaxed when I went to bed. Argh…
Today Shelley and I got out on our tandem for the firs time in 2012 and man was it nice.
I started the ride in knee warmers, sun glasses and by the end of the ride I had unzipped my vest and taken my gloves off. YES.
The pace today was very relaxed which was great! I was seriously worried that these guys were going to drill and then since I was pretty beat down we were going to be on a solo ride. Not so bad in itself but not when you start with a group.
We rode and chatted and chatted some more and squinted in the sun. Fabulous.
We did 'race' up the last hill (I think that last hill into Woodinville is always a race…) and I was happy that all the bikes were not so far apart. This got everyone pretty stoked and there was much talk of doing STP in one day this year on tandems. Yikes. For that to happen Shelley and I would both need to address some comfort issues on this bike, but it's kind of exciting so worth looking into.
