Tandem captain needed for 22 July 2023
« on: 10 July, 2023, 08:16:57 am »
Have you wondered what it is like to ride a tandem?

The Wee McTaggert is visiting near London from the Scottish Borders for a couple of weeks. I am captaining him round a 200 on 29 July on our tandem but I have another commitment the previous weekend.

We had a captain lined up for the Suffolk Lanes Extravaganza 200 on 22 July but he has had to withdraw at short notice.

I can supply and transport a nice tandem adjusted to fit you and will give newbie captains good advice on how to ride a tandem safely and enjoyably. You (the captain) get a short, light but powerful stoker, a fun day out and (probably) a desire to tandem again.

Let me know that you are interested and we can all benefit from this chance.

Ooh, I’d love to do this but can’t make that day unfortunately. Also Suffolk is a bit of a trek.

And not I’m sure I’m for enough for a 200 right now either, though sharing the effort might made a difference.

Hope you find someone.

The Wee McT more than pulls his weight. We did my fastest 400 this century a few years back and that speed wasn’t my doing.

I'd be happy to do this but going to watch Glory Ride musical that day.
