Before our first test ride on our "Rans
Screamer" neither of us had ever ridden
a tandem bicycle, of any kind.
Jeff had only limited experience on a
recumbent bike, and Michelle had never
ridden a recumbent at all. After
just one test ride, we were hooked.
There was no question that we had found
the tandem we were looking for! In
our first year, we put 2,000 miles on
Every time we rode, people would stop us to
ask questions about our unusual tandem
bicycle. That was the original
reason for creating this website, to
answer all those questions and share our
experience. Our simple idea of a
place to answer questions about our
tandem recumbent bike grew into
much more. Through this website,
we shared all about tandems and
recumbents with people everywhere.
exciting for us to receive
emails from all over the United States
and other countries as well.
We have always tried to make this
website the best bike riding resource
that we possibly could!
The reality is that we have reached a
point in our lives where time has caught
up with us a bit, and we
unable to ride the way we used to.
There was a time in our mid 50's that we
worked our way up to the place where a
60 mile ride was pretty normal. As
you can see on the pages of this
website, we also rode a century ride,
and did some touring.
As we look toward the
future, we still want to be active but
for us that will take the form of
taking our new foldable bikes
along with us in an RV as we travel.
