I met Brent Adams today at a rest stop during a Century I was riding with a bunch of friends. This guy is totally devoted to his two young girls Ava and Adele... so devoted that he bought a custom Co-Motion Tandem built for all three of them to ride! I was totally in awe of this guy when he told me that the three of them did the 70 mile ride last year (Adele was just 7) and couldn't stop myself from posting about it!
Take note of the detail Brent put into this; pink seats and handlebar tape, special seat tubes that will allow him to fit the girls as they grow.You've got to be impressed by the matching jerseys and the girl's coordinated outfits !

Very cute, but that has to be like riding a tank!
We ran into Brent and the girls with about 15 miles left > they did the 70 and Brent confided that he was about toast at that point. But the girls were still all smiles 🙂
Now that’s my sort of guy.
I like to poke fun at my husband and his reluctance to get a tandem to ride with me…..but if the daughter had wanted it, he’d be there knocking at the tandem shop door before they even opened.
He was the one who dressed our dog in the barn colours to come and support the daughter at horse shows etc. etc
Vivienne I wish you lived near by and could stop over and borrow our tandem for a “test drive” to see if you two could co-ride one of these delicate machines.
