A Tandem Metric

“The first big ride of the year and we do it on a Salsa Powderkeg tandem! The decision on how to dress was another issue. At this time of year in Iowa we are used to temps below freezing and even below zero. The forecast called for 65 degrees for a high, although I did not believe it, it got to 65 or even a little warmer with a 20mph SW wind.

Luckliy the SW wind meant we would have a tailwind at 30 miles in for the remainder of the ride although that didn’t make the 6k feet of elevation gain over 65 miles much easier, we had a great day on the bike with great people!”
