Tandem bikes are both a novelty and a practical solution for a pair of cyclists. You'll certainly get noticed on a tandem and its a great conversation starter.
Many couples prefer a tandem because you can share the load and use less energy overall in getting where you're going - so you'll have more energy left to admire the scenery. A tandem can also be useful when one cyclist has a mobility or vision issue that makes it difficult or impossible for them to cycle alone.
Tandem bikes can actually be less expensive that buying two bikes of the same quality. Well there's just less bike there! So you can economise or buy a better quality bike than you could otherwise afford.
In this article we'll look at a range of tandem bikes from inexpensive but good value through to a luxury electric tandem bike.
