Nice article on my neighbors and Tuesday/Thursday riding partners. My job has been to sit out front, pull and make them ride faster longer!! It has always been great training for me and it sounds like it hasn't hurt them either. The columnist had called me about doing an article that others might find worthy. I sent him to these two.

I was interviewed for some information related to our Time Trials at the Speedway (second part of the story):

Those are really nice articles, jppe, they show a good side to our sport. Tandems are impressive when the captain and the stoker are synced up and moving as a single unit. the handcycle guy interests me, those hand cycle riders are a special breed. I have read everything I could find about the Wounded Warrior program and their adaptive cycle riders. Thanks for the links to a couple of nice articles.
