Have you ever ridden a tandem bicycle? Did you find it difficult?
I haven’t, but have always wanted to. They were out in full force today, as Mel and I walked around the seawall in Stanley Park. My Grandmother and her partner use to ride one all the time; we have all these crazy pictures of her with her tandem bike over various parts of California. I recall riding on the back when I was really young, but I think even then the parentals must have had the sense that my coordination was off, as I was never allowed to ride it, even when I grew up.
I proposed the tandem bike ride idea to the Boy, as we bike a lot anyway, and he just laughed. Abruptly stopping once he realized I was serious.
I’ve seen you fall from a standing position…you want a ride a tandem bicycle through the busiest park in Van?
Good thing I have my own helmet.
