Family stress….sleepless nights…..poor supper….darkness….it all added up this morning. We rode the tandem 20 miles, but that’s about all we can say.
When you ride a tandem, it really doesn’t take much to throw the team out of kilter. We’re usually pretty awesome as we work together, but this morning we just couldn’t get our act together. Hills slowed us down badly, and we couldn’t muster much speed on the flats.
On a more positive note, the commute in was pretty nice, and it is a beautiful day.
I was curious, so I added up my mileage last night. It stood at 3,397 combined miles between the tandem and the single. About 1,600 on the tandem and 1,800 on the single, which is a little disappointing to me…I would prefer to have more tandem miles than miles alone. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to break4,200 miles for the year, but even if I don’t, I think this has been a pretty successful year in terms of biking. Commuting has added a whole new dimension, and I think it’s taken away some of the need to get back on the bike in the evening. Pam and I have been walking a lot for our evening exercise, and it’s great to spend that time with her. It sure is nice to hold her sweet hand as we stroll along!
