What is a tandem bike?
Tandem bikes are one of the most recognizable types of bikes on the market because they are one of the few bikes that allow two or more riders to ride together in tandem.
Due to their increased frame size, tandem bikes are typically heavier, longer and more massive than traditional bikes, allowing them to comfortably accommodate multiple riders on board.
What is a tandem bike designed for?
Tandems allow two or more cyclists to ride together, regardless of their fitness or experience.
Because two or more cyclists provide power to the wheels when they are riding well, tandems can travel much faster than a cyclist on a conventional bike. This extra power makes tandems better at climbing bigger hills.
Who should use a tandem bike?
Many cyclists take part in long-distance tandem bicycle tours. Tandem touring is especially good when one cyclist is more confident than the other, who may have difficulty keeping up if riding a separate touring bike.
Riding a tandem bike with a friend or partner is a great team-building exercise that will force you to work together.
