BACK TO BIKING
Great to finally visit the Bike Friday heaven... where they are all made and sold. We had a good chat with Terrific Tim the bike mechanic (he's the one with the beard!) Then we had a tour of the operation with Peter Berra (they call him kookaberra in Australia). He's wearing the black T. While they were servicing the Banana Split, they loaned us a tandem to try out! A fast tandem with STIs and Ultegra gear! It was as light as... as Fay is trying to show you. But, we really like ours and the way it is set up. I told Fay we would've got over 80 kph the other day on the grey bike... but she prefers comfort to speed any day. 79.8 is quick enough she reckons!
Next... Corvallis for the NORTH WEST TANDEM RALLY.
Cheerio beautiful bike friendly Eugene, and thanks heaps to Laura, Gary and Ellen. (Strawberries willbe posted next time.) Great meal Laura!
