I have been bugging Paul for a year to try a tandem. The problem is, we both want to be the Pilot.
I'll admit taking the Stoker position will be a lot to get used to (giving up all control). But in reality Middy is a much better "technical" rider than me and I have more strength/power. So her being the pilot and me being the stoker just makes more sense. Besides, I can take the opportunity to day dream and enjoy the scenery more this way :)
We have photographic evidence that Middy just sits back and rests when she is in the back of the kayak :)
Another reason to not let her take the back seat!! LOL.....
