Why We Tandem
What one change could you make to revitalize your health, relationships and sense of well being? Believe it or not, the answer could be a tandem bicycle. Forget Daisy and those clunky rental bikes for two. More than a machine, toy or high-tech product, today’s tandem bicycles have the power to improve the quality of your life. As fun as most purchases are when new, how many can revitalize your health, relationships and sense of well-being? A tandem can.
By transcending their obvious roles as fun products, tandems provide a regular dose of health, travel and companionship. Invariably, people who ride tandems spend uninterrupted time together, converse comfortably, maintain fitness (while working out at their own level), experience new worlds and gain a shared feeling of accomplishment. What tandem owners tell us over and over is that while a $3,000–$6,000 bicycle seemed expensive at first, what they really bought was an inexpensive recreational vehicle opening up a lifetime of fun, closeness and shared memories.
