Diane and I had discussed riding the tandem to the indoor volleyball location even before her car was stolen. Now it was our only option.
Luckily Diane is fearless in traffic – as long as I’m driving. So, as the captain of the tandem, we did fine. I had my Dinotte 140L and PDW Radbot 1000 taillights mounted. Anyone who can’t see me from behind is legally blind. I also had the Dinotte XML-3 headlight.
Both of us took a change of clothes. The cooler temperatures are making this necessary.
We won all three of our volleyball games – because I was lucky enough to get a good team.
The trip home was mostly the same as the way out only darker and cooler. I took a different route once closer to home, enjoying a 32mph downhill.
The ride was more than 23 miles round-trip. With my commute to work today, I rode 30 miles for the day. I’ll take it.
