Tandem Test Rides and Instruction

Test riding! How do you get started in your search for the right tandem? Local bike shops rarely have a selection of brands, and almost NEVER have a tandem in your size to test ride.
(And don't think proper fit isn't important! It's imperative on a tandem!)

You could try renting a tandem at a vacation resort, but how likely will the operators have one that fits or even works correctly after fifty other couples have taken it out? Borrowing from a friend who's about your size? That COULD work, since your friends with high quality tandems will likely be as enthusiastic about tandems as we are! But, still can't compare models and features unless they have a "stable" of tandems, and that is unlikely! So, why not try a test ride with us? We have a wide variety of models, sizes, and colors to choose from. We can send you out on a machine that fits you and your needs, and we know what you need to make your first tandem ride a smooth one.

If you haven't ridden a tandem, get ready for fun. We want your first tandem ride to be a safe, instructive, and enjoyable experience. We have taught over 800 couples how to ride a tandem. With a proper introduction, it's easy to captain a tandem, and even easier to be a stoker. We'll teach you the official Proper Method of riding a tandem. It's really easy, but it sure helps to have us give you tips and pointers. You'll have fun test riding with us!
