Yesterday, we finally got out for a tandem ride with Dave and Diane. They have a tandem as well — a nice blue Trek with an awesome sparkly flame decal on the bottom tube.
Denis was lamenting the fact that we didn’t have matching Zombie Raccoon jerseys — but, conveniently enough, Dave had one that was too small, so we made him an offer he couldn’t refuse 😀 Denis changed before we headed out, so we matched on the ride.
Barring a brief and alarming episode right at the start of the ride during which my bars pivoted (evidently they loosened up when the tandem fell over in the truck), we enjoyed riding together.
Stops included dinner at the Bristol, Denis’ favorite restaurant, then proceeded on to Apocalypse Brew Works. Our last stop of the evening was at the Comfy Cow on Cardinal Ave for an ice cream nightcap.
After that, we rolled back to Dave’s house and called it a night.
Next week, we’re going to try to hit up the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular in Iroquois Park. I might even remember to take pictures of the actual bikes!
