First outing

Posted by admin On Diciembre - 2 - 2009

Iván: 2nd December, day of our first try on the vehicle that must transport us through Europe. This training route is formed by 5 days and covers about 650 kilometres, an easy task compared with what awaits us. It will help us measure the capacity of our tandem bike, our legs capacity and our suffering resistance. Impressions, from cold to hot, position pains and the feeling that my teammate doesn’t know how to stay still, hahaha, he is a spinning washing machine! Hahah. Anyway… Castellón – Tortosa, not bad as a start, tomorrow to Caspe, surely we will have to overcome steeps and the cold, I will let you know. Greetings to everyone, I leave you with my partner!

JL: Truth is that the tandem bike is not a vehicle tohave a lot of fun. It requires a lot of coordination and doesn’t allow a lot of entertainment when riding it. Ivan says I move too much, but riding the back seat of a road tandem bike with a case and a knapsack sometimes feels like riding the fair attraction “the whip”. Each rough movement made by the pilotis like a lurch thatmakes you lose balance. The other day, he did a sudden manoeuvre to dodge astreetlamp and I was with only one hand on the wheel and I literally fell over. Anyway, I recommend all of you to try itsometime.

Here is the first route (with the possibility of seeing the profile):
