Tandem Travellers


Scribe first met Matthew & Linda in 2005 following an approach from Sean aka Smurf  for a Pilot to ride a tandem with him.  Scribe didn't know anything about tandem riding, even though he had jumped on an old tandem that Sean had borrowed the day he visited Sean's Mt. Colah home.  So Scribe searched the web for any tandem owners seeking advice and came across an old site called Tandem Club of Australia domiciled in Melb, where Scribe found Matthew's e-mail address. 

The following Saturday Linda and Matthew, who had recently moved up from Mexico, met Sean and Scribe at Fullers Bridge and taught 'em how to ride a tandem.

Scribe has now cycled with 6 vision impaired cyclists, so he is indebted for Linda and Matthew's tuition.
