We’ve been talking about the option of indoor training for a while, especially as our existing trainers have been heavily used over the years and don’t seem suited to the tandem. Then we thought it would be a good idea to take the tandem to some fetes and cycling events to publicise our LEJOG adventure. It’s not as easy as you might think to find suitable devices to hold a tandem in one spot whilst we pedal away and chat to people about our plans.
Fingers crossed, when this arrives next week, we will have the solution.
It looks somewhat peculiar without a bike attached but should mean that we can peddle away and Boo at least will be able to explain our plans, and maybe even shake a fundraising bucket.
Now we just need to book ourselves onto a few local events, prepare some literature for people to take away, maybe a poster with a map. Should the poster have the terrain on, or will the sight of the hills involved worry Boo too much?
It would seem more decisions are required, but at least we’ve made one!
