And every so often we receive an email or even a photograph in an envelope, showing a Bilenky propped against a wall or in front of a mountain in some far-off land, or of someone's favourite bike that we modified with S&S couplers to make it all ready for long-distance travel.

So it was great to hear from Dave and Loren, who are about to embark on Adventure Cycling's Northern Tier Route on the Bilenky Viewpoint semi-recumbent travel tandem that we built for them, similar to this one. With S&S couplers the frame separates for packing into airline-size cases.
They've set up a blog at which you can follow their journey:
We wish them all the best and look forward to more updates as they start the ride...
And do you have a great photo of your Bilenky out in the world? Send it to us and we'll put together a gallery of riders' pictures.
