But seriously, it's not just hauling the extra weight, it's also the balancing which can get tricky in some spots in the playa. Even though I had the benefit of a second set of legs pedaling, there were a few white-knuckle moments try to navigate the soft stuff.
2011 was a highly unusual year weather wise. There have already been some decent dust storm (reports from DPW & Gate peeps)...
At the moment the playa looks like it has oodles of small dunes. Once a few thousand people have trampled over it, it will be dust. Hopefully not as bad as in 2008, but only time will tell.
The tandem bike is a cool idea. Does that bike have wide tires??
