This photo was taken by Spencer’s brother Chris at the Northwest Tandem Rally. The rally route went right by Chris’ house on Bailey Hill Road in Eugene, Oregon.

This is the first year that we’ve actually gotten out on our tandem in the winter. In the first two weeks of the year we actually did two rides totalling more than 55 miles. Not a lot but for January in Seattle, not bad. In February we only rode once (36 miles). In March we headed to Arizona and put on 172 miles. So we feel like we got off to the best start ever. At the end of the season our total mileage is at an all-time high of 3,586. You can read all about our training season here.

Below are the major trips we have completed this year. Each is linked to our photo journals about the trip.
