    Tandemcam.

    A little clip from yesterdays tandem ride.

    I always wandered how my stoker looked when on the tandem.

    Very cool camera angle! I'm assuming it is mounted backwards to the top of the Capt. helmet?? We are always experimenting with different angles, thats a good one!

    Yep. Rear facing helmet mount. Turned out quite well.

    Great video. I'm always wondering whats going on back there. Was your stoker on her best behavior since she knew she was being filmed? My wife said this can't happen, I'm not allowed to see her secrets.

    Nice!

    In the foreground, what is sometimes visible -- the Captains jersey or camelback, maybe?

    Look liked they dumped the bike between a couple of trees right at the ridge... You can just make out that the tandem is slowing, and then what looks to be the captain coming out of the corner on foot with that tell-tale studder step, "I just bailed" look to his gate.

    Yep it's my jersey. There's not enough room for me to wear a pack.


    ...And what happened to the second tandem team?
    It was their first offroad outing on it so they're still a little slow.
    Knowing how fast the captain is on his solo though they'll soon be up to speed.

    The trail's in a local nature reserve.

    My stoker commented about another captain that doesn't use brakes.
