Conquering ports

Posted by admin On Diciembre - 6 - 2009

JL: Moroyo-Castellón-Benicasim (136 Kms), going up to the ports of Torremiró and Querol through the north side. With this tough stage we end our first long training outing. It has been five days of physical preparation to accustom the muscles to the prolonged efforts during several continuous days. Also to improve the coordination of movements on top of the tandem; maybe one of the less evident things but one of the most important. We also had to test the tandem´s and the equipment’s resistance. We need to test many things, specially if we carry a case with bags or a luggage carrier (both options have its pros and cons). And of course, to get to know my partner better, with whom I’ve shared very good times.

I would like to thank all the drivers who have gone ahead of us with precaution and remind those who have not done so, due to hurries or unawareness, that they surely also have a love one that drives a bicycle on the road.

Our next long outing will be in February and will be a little bit more demanding. Until then, we have more than two months of a strict daily routine of swimming, gym workout and bicycling. I hope the flu doesn’t prevent us too much from training. We need to push up our aerobic threshold as much as possible in order to confront with guarantees this tough challenge.
We would appreciate any experiences shared regarding tandem trips.

Iván: Since an image is more valuable than a thousand words, we uploaded a video of our descent from the Querol port on a tandembicycle so all the cycling enthusiasts can enjoy it. A long descent that tests the brakes and cold-blood, because I am sure this has been one of the few times somebody has dared to descend it on a tandem.
