On a rather crisp Bank Holiday Monday morning, Tim & Mat set out to take their first tentative pedal strokes on a bicycle made for two. It was a fairly wobbly affair and it will take a bit of practice to develop the finesse that the bike deserves, but, Tim, Mat and Tandem all escaped without harm. All the morning’s action was captured on film by Jonny ‘Spielberg’ Simpson, who has put together a fantastic video for you all to see.
The pair have since been out on a slightly longer twenty-mile ride on the tandem sporting, for the first time, their rather fetching shirts from Shutt Velo Rapide. They were deemed ‘too sexy’ for the video but if you are all very nice there may be some pictures coming soon. By the end of the ride the Tandem was a much more stable place to be and the twenty miles were rattled off in about an hour, feeling and looking fantastic. There was even a chance to have a nice chat about the pros and cons of Syria and Sudan!
