#37 – Ride a tandem bike

After visiting the Butterfly Conservatory this weekend, we were headed to visit with Adam’s family, when we drove past a bike rental outpost that had a tandem bike out front, so of course we stopped and went for a ride.  So fun, but did take a bit to get the knack of it.   The person in the back (me) can’t see, doesn’t steer or brake, so basically has to give up control (not my strength).  The person in front (Adam) needs to communicate pretty well, since it’s one chain, and both riders need to pedal, or not, at the same time.  Overall, between this and our tandem log sawing, we’re basically covering couples therapy for the year.  We really liked it once we figured it out, and the trails around Niagara-on-the-Lake are amazing for biking.  So fun!


Details: The rental outpost was Zoom Leisure Bike Rentals (the same place we rented bikes from last year).  Information and rates from Zoom can be found here.

    These selfies are priceless. We rented a tandem in Hawaii a couple years ago and loved it! Therefore it’s on the list for this year 🙂
