Why Ride a Tandem?
We’d say, why not? They’re a great way for two people to cycle and spend time together.
You might want to go cycling with your partner, but you’re of different abilities. Or you might be looking for a way for you and your child to cycle together. Either way, a tandem offers the chance to cycle together, spend time together and have some fun. For some people tandem riding is a leisure pursuit, a trip out on the bike followed by Sunday lunch. For others, it’s part of their armoury in their quest for adventure.
Like regular bikes, tandems come in a range of models to suit different types of cycling. From touring and road racing, through to mountain biking or leisurely cycling along country roads. Both riders have to pedal, so if you’re thinking you’ll be sitting on the back having an easy ride, think again. With two riders (both pedalling!), there’s twice the power, making tandem riding a fun activity to do together.
In general, the choice of wheel size on your tandem will be determined by what you want to use your tandem for. Combine the right wheel size with the right handlebar choice and we can create the perfect tandem to meet your requirements. Our prices range from around £850 upwards and with more than 50 years of experience between us here at JD Tandems we can advise you on what you’ll need – either in person or at our showroom.
