Married my adventure/cycling buddy today in Reno ! Between her sense of humor, zest for life and an incredible collection of bikes I would have been nuts to not tie this knot.

Congratulations. What a great cycling match. Best wishes for a happy cycling life together. (And am quite relived the thread was not about your gentleman part)

Congratulations! I married my life partner 45 years ago . We have ridden many miles together. She cannot ride as much any more due to physical disabilities but we enjoy our time nonetheless.

Congratulations!
A marriage is a lot like a bicycle, with a little care, it will last a long time and give you much pleasure.

I was really expecting a thread about chain rings...although in this case it turned out to be a "ball and chain ring".

Mazel Tov to you both!

Be careful, this can happen when you wear matching outfits.

Congratulations! I also think it was smart to get the tandem BEFORE you married her. From what I've read, they are a very true tests of relationships.
