It also has cupholders. And two seats. Whee!
|Steed for two|
I am thrilled at the prospect of whizzing about with a friend on this shiny machine. And it has cupholders, so we can get coffee. There will be adventures. And cupholding. Or perhaps the tiny squirrel will sit in the cupholders. There may well be picnics. There will have to be a basket or panniers or something. Heads will turn. I will wave at small children. And drink beverages from my cupholders. I may even learn not to cut through the traffic like a maniac.
This isn't a totally spur-of-the-moment rash decision. I have had my eye on a tandem for a while as they are just such sociable things. So when one so stylish and unusual (as far as I'm aware, Schwinn don't sell these outside the USA these days) came along I had to throw my hat in the ring for it. Especially as red is one of my favourite colours. And did I mention the cupholders? One of these days I will offer to pick you up at the station and get even more funny looks riding to town with a missing stoker. Just a back set of pedals going round and round all by themselves.
So... back to how I need to start looking for a new bicycle...
