There are still patches of snow where the warm finger of the sun’s rays have not been able to reach. Mounds of ugly snow are pushed to the ends of parking lots, their melt water streaming to find a drain. The temperature has risen up to the 40’s. It’s time to get the bike out.
But its not just any bike. Its a Co-motion tandem, Oregon green with bright yellow trim. And it has a name.
The green periscope torpedo tandem. It takes a captain and a stoker to ride a tandem. Communication between the two has to be good or you end up getting really frustrated with each other.
As we get back on the bike (today is the 2nd day we have ridden) we are reminded how important communication is. Its a reflection of our life, of our marriage. It makes things work.
