Turns out that riding a tandem bike is way more about trust, partnership, communication, balance (literal and figurative) and overcoming fear than we expected! When Ryan found a pretty darn awesome used tandem bike online, Liberty definitely had her reservations about being “in the back” and “not having control.” In truth, both people on a tandem have to work equally hard and drive forward together and in complete partnership. Other people were waving, smiling and calling “awesome!” from their cars (one girl snapped a photo!) having an idea that we were practicing great harmony while have fun. We had an absolute blast on our inaugural ride and can’t wait to keep practicing the same important relationship principals on the road with this great bike!
