She actually got me started in cycling. Then last October, she quit because she said I had made it "not fun anymore". She was right (lesson: even if someone is pulling the whole ride, it doesn't make it easy if they are going too fast for you). She has been on the gym cycles for a few months so she had already built back some strength. Last week, we got in 16.5 miles at a 14.3mph average. She picked up the pace this week and we got 21 miles in at 15.6mph average. Quite a bit of this time was side by side riding, no drafting on her part. I commented on how strong she was riding after so long off the bike and she confessed she had been doing intervals on the gym bikes!!! At this rate, her average speed is going to increase pretty quickly. But even if it doesn't, it really is nice to be riding together again.
Sounds like you need to invest in a tandem. (nm)TWD
