Doubling up

The Alpkit mountain tandem gets it first test run in the hills

A few weeks on from their Highland Trail adventure Rich and Tom have ditched their seperate bikes for a custom Alpkit Tandem.

Whether their new adventures are going to be half the effort and twice the fun is yet to be seen. Powered by Tom and steered by Rich we are hoping to see a lot more of this steed in its natural habitat over the coming months as they work towards their Great Divide attempt in 2016. 

Rich and Tom's adventures are kitted out using Alpkit UK made bike luggage, the Ordos 2 tent and a few other bits from us, as well as Rapha clothing and Exposure lights. They are currently looking at increasing the aspect ratio of their website to incorporate pictures of the new bike!
