Training and More Training

Stef and I rode 84 miles between Sunday and Monday and still felt pretty good afterwards.  Maybe we're going to be ready for the this crazy ride after all.
We had a treat on Monday.  The lovely Liz made a house call and spent some time teaching us how to adjust our gears and breaks and do other maintenance on the tandem.
She and I did a trade of bike repair lessons for knitting lessons.  I love bartering!
It was especially wonderful to learn all this stuff because tandems are notorious fussbudgets when it comes to gear adjustment.  We've been getting 2-3 weeks or 150-200 miles out of a gear adjustment and the bike shop guys are getting a little tired of seeing us.  Now we can do it ourselves!  Yea, Liz!
