- Understanding: Ultra distance cycling is my husband’s passion. I am SAG (Support and Gear) for the big events but I wanted to share an event with him on the bike as opposed to in a chase vehicle. I wanted a window into the next level of cycling I’ve only observed from the outside.
- Personal Challenge: We used to refer to marathons, centuries as triathlons as “stupid human tricks” and have always needed a regular dose of the insanity. This was simply the next level.
- Couples Connection: I wanted another opportunity to touch the level of intimacy that only happens when two people work as a team to overcome adversity. There is nothing more ‘together’ in my opinion than tandem cycling. Cancer is up there but simply not as fun.
