My daughters first long ride with me came several years ago on the back of our Rodriguez tandem. We rode the Centennial Trail from Spokane to Coeur dAlene. Rene was six at the time. We stopped to play in the river when we got hot and took plenty of play breaks. Its not the fastest Ive every rode that route, but we had a lot of fun. Rene called the tandem My Tandem the rest of the summer and would get jealous when her brother would ride with me.
This summer, Rene and I road the trail together again. Same tandem, same riders, but what a difference three years makes. Rene now has a little need for speed and the two of us made short work of the miles. We didnt stop until we hit Spokane and took a breather before climbing the citys south hill to Grandmas.
Fast or slow, nothing beats a tandem ride with your daughter.
