 I'm a 50yr female captain of a tandem, coming from a mountain bike single track background. I ride every weekend on the tandem with guys 70 - 80 + yrs & blind. I try my best to bring the flow & adrenalin to our rides every time we go out. The hard work of pumping it up hills on Ms V8 as we have named my new Cannondale tandem is often met with the disappointment of speed humps on our down hill run. I dream of this kind of suspension to ride with my crazy old mate who also likes to be clipped in. Its great fun & trust, I encourage you all to give it a go. My visually impaired buddies bring a completely new meaning to the joy of riding. Cheers Pamala

 so the guy on the back is blind and 70 something years old? unreal... so rad that you do what you do!!!

 Tandem riders need more exposure for sure. I would pay to see people front flip a tandem.

 The guy behind isn't 70 years old but he is actually blind! That couple guys ride many many championships in Spain, specially in catalonia (around Barcelona) RESPECT to them!! I had the chance to ride as a passenger and a pilot in this tandem... being the passenger with the official pilot was for sure the time ive got most adrenaline riding DH, the experience was awesome and really scary!! As a pilot the most relevant things to say is that it's way harder than you expect to move the bike and 100x times more tiring for your hands than in any other ride. They got the bike from the Spanish brand MSC, they did specially for them putting together two MSC F5 frames... If you want more info check their website! www.tandemdh.com

 This is so heartwarming. Go you, keep being awesome!

 Just imagine being the guy in the back...all you can do is pedal and hope to go the other guy doesn't crash the bike
  • + 12
 On the plus side, you have someone to break your fall. That is, if you position him properly during the crash.
  • + 6
 And on top of that (LOL), you can't see when it's coming anyway. Knowing your about to crash is normally worse then the crash.
  • + 11
 but can you imagine how ridiculously fun that would be? probably be worth a few crashes haha!
  • + 9
 I'd imagine the blind rider has a more in tune sense of balance and knows when those oh shit moments are inevitable. Keep rippin, brah!

 I would hope that I could at least turn my bars a little, to make me feel better. Kinda like the toy car steering wheels when I was a kid. Calming.

 As someone who has ridden on the back of a mountain tandem, I'm glad they are padded up as much as an astronaut.

 UCI TANDEM WORLD CUP 2015!!!!! Mandatory gaps a must though.

 I don't know which event would bring more carnage, Tandem DH or that 10 person dh race event that's being promoted. Either way, both a going to be a gong-show and uber fun to watch.

 This is where the English language developed punctuation Wink
  • + 9
 Punctuate me in Polish and I will bow to you. Oh look at those people Campbell, they come from a land with a different language with totaly different grammar structure. They took effort to learn our language instead of German or Russian but such a pity, their punctuation is outrageous, what s bunch of oiks. Yes sir Richard, if that 0.0000001% of English speakers willing to learn a foreign language would go out and learn it, they would punctuate like crew of HMS Victoria washes the deck and folds their underwear

 wow, WAKI, way to be annoying
  • + 3
 WAKI clearly you did not read the photo description. It is not about the tandem its about a blind guy who sits in the back

 I am terribly sorry for looking at the picture from another angle. Such a faux pais...
  • + 4
 I thought you were having a joke there waki.
Some of these pb ers are a grumpy bunch.
I don't mind about the punctuation, you can try harder next time Wink

 Hey waki, your numbers are very wrong. Many in the US speak and learn multiple languages. Enough with the negs about my country. The US is a great place, with some of the most amazing people on the planet. Stop taking shots at my country. The person you were responding to wasn't even from US.
  • + 0
 Oops, thought you were slamming US again, but just English speakers, never mind.
  • + 2
 Randy - i am rarely dead serious. Obviously, this thing would require same punctuation in almost every language. Deadtine - BS! You Americans just speak Spanish and only because you have to, otherwise you'd not be able to order any house service

 I think they just wave a visa and point to what they want done....
