Captain Chris Schumacher and Katie Frederick on a recumbent tandem

Shown above are Chris Schumacher, the captain, and Katie Frederick, the stoker, on September 3, 2011 riding TUKANDU's recumbent tandem bicycle.
The tandem consists of two recumbant tricycles with the front wheel of the rear tricycle removed. Then the front of that tricycle is hooked into a socket on the rear of the front tricycle. Each unit has its own gear and break control operating independently of the other unit.
TUKANDU was the grateful recipiant of the very gracious donation of the recumbent tandem bicycle. Since the donation in late August of 2011, the members are eager to try it out before end of season.
