We shoved off around 7:45 and headed for Hermann Park and then up to the Museum District. Traffic was indeed very light. We were able to cruise through usually busy intersections without stopping. Within 45 minutes we were sipping coffee on the porch of our friends house. After this delightful break we pushed off for Rice Village for breakfast at La Madelaine. More coffee, great food and the Sunday paper. This city ride was growing on me.
After breakfast we turned west again and pointed the bike back towards the house. We meandered through West University and Bellaire, enjoying the view. Lots of people were out walkng, picking up the paper or tending to their yards. Most all of them smiled or waved when they saw us roll by on our our tandem.
The Seavo is the ideal tandem for this type of ride. It's 1.5" tires glide over ruts, bumps and gravel without much trouble. It's steady and stable even at the slower cruising speeds we use on these city streets.
We ended up with 20 miles although we hardly ever looked down at the computer. The quiet morning city sights were our entertainment. What a way to start a Sunday!
