"No matter which way your relationship is headed, a tandem will speed it along" ---David Sundstrom
As you read on the home page of this web site we are cycling enthusiast. These days however, we are "Tandem" cycling enthusiast. Why a Tandem? I liken riding a tandem to dancing. When on one of our tandems my wife and I ride at the same speed, at roughly the same effort and on the same route. We spin the same cadence and take breaks together. We have to want to stop at the same restaurants while out on a ride or at the same cafe at the end of a ride. We get to spend a lot of time together whether on a road tandem or an off road tandem.
It's sounding more and more like dancing to me. At this point in our lives that is not entirely a bad thing. I once heard another tandem couple say, and I quoted at the top of this page "No matter which way your relationship is headed, a tandem will speed it along". That really sums up riding together. In our case it has zoomed our relationship along in a very good direction.
Modern tandems are not the old beat up rentals you may have seen at the tourist spots you have visited. Although you can purchase a rather inexpensive model you can also pay a king's ransom for a go fast model. Look into "The Tandem Link" for the most comprehensive web site about tandems and tandem equipment that I know of. I also have include some links to a MTB tandem enthusiast website The Double Forte, one of my tandem stories, some tandem photos and what I consider useful tandem information.
See ya on the road,
