We had some friends over this weekend for a little cheering-up party, and I took a few of those friends out for night rides on the ol' bikey. The night was perfectly cool, everyone was pumped from some seriously intense rounds of Catch Phrase, and the neighborhood was quiet. I absolutely adore night rides... even though my new riders almost tipped the tandem once or twice. It takes some getting used to! The guy above is not one of my night-time tandem newbies-- just a husband with a haircut.
Thanks to the prettiest bike shop around, the tandem has some snazzy new accessories. Have you heard of Eleanor's before? I hadn't until they sent me a little email, but now I'm a huge fan. They have all the pretty bike things my tandey needs!
I put the bell on the back handlebars just for Hope. She let out a little squeal when she realized it was there. Now when we ride through the neighborhood you definitely hear us coming. ;)
I've mentioned this before, but she (the bike, not Hope) still needs a name! I want something clever, but not too obvious, you know? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm off to help Johnny shop for a helmet-- I already have mine picked out!
