tandems and time trials

Posted By: Mark Silver

I piloted my racing tandem to victory in yesterdays race, the Maidenhead and District 15 mile time trial, completed in 34 mins 39 seconds. Whilst we rode well, winning was pretty much a certainty: we were the only entry. Now I know racing is not everyones cup of tea, but I almost can't remember the last time I took part in a tandem race that had more than a handful of participants. Its well sad, because its such a lovely sport, and this is from someone who considers himself not particularly competitve, and likes nothing better than poodleing to the local tea shop.
Whilst I realise that nostalgia ain't what it used to be, one or two decades back, tandem time trials (such as the Tandem Club 25 that went by RAF Duxford), attracted getting on for a hundered machines. It was a hell of a spectacle, and a lovely day.
Any views, chaps?
