A heel strap might be craftable... it's not as if it has to be done up in a rush is it...
A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way. No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.

Do you frequent that beach? Or was this a one time trip?

We go there quite a bit as it's local. We live about 10 miles away on the opposite coast in Pendeen. There's a short coastal cycle path from Penzance through to Marazion which is beautiful if quick ride.

Might have to drop you a line next time I'm down with bikes...

That would be cool. Mind you I'm neither fit or fast so I may not be the best riding partner but you would be made very welcome.

The tandem is very stable and easy to handle at slow speeds uphill. As for quickness, well that largely depends on how hard you pedal it :D, but it seems pretty efficient on the flat, and downhill it's like a rocket! We love it
