A FAMILY HISTORY OF TANDEMS…
Huw: “I think riding tandems must be in the blood or something. My parents are now both in their late seventies. The picture below was taken last summer (July 2009). The weather wasn’t great which is why my mother is wearing the very (un)flattering souwester and cape!”
“But they aren’t the first members of the family to ride tandems. The picture below is of my mum’s parents – I think this was taken sometime in the early 1930s.
“My granddad used to win all sorts of prizes as a club cyclist and would often clock up over 100 miles in a day on his tandem. And this was long before bikes had all the fancy kit and range of gears that we take for granted today.”
