The Tandem Bicycles are also known as twin form bicycles, bicycles built for two (occasionally a tricycle) and are designed to be ridden by more than one person. The word tandem means sitting back and front (Seating back and forth). These are designed to enjoy cycling together and it allows riding a cycle with one who doesn’t know how to ride a cycle independently. Tandems are the best mode of transport to enjoy the ride with someone you want to. These are the easy, fast and healthy ways to have a ride together. Tandems allow communicating easily with your partner and have fun together.
Tandem is a double bike, ideal for couples who like to ride together, but have varying degrees of strength or endurance. The tandem bikes can be ridden by more than a person, the front rider steers as well as pedals the bicycle and is known as the captain, pilot, or steersman; the rear rider only pedals and is known as the stoker, navigator or rear admiral. The person who sits in the front controls the direction of movement, responsible for the brakes and gear shift pattern.

Tandems are available in both forms such as standard road bikes, and even recumbent bikes. There are so many benefits to using tandems. These bikes have double pedal power with the same wind resistance as conventional bikes. High-performance tandems may weigh lesser than conventional bikes and the power to weight ratio is slightly better than the conventional bikes. The weight of the bicycle and wind resistance per person can be decreased.
Tandems are really great for the partners with the unequal ability of riding. If a partner is having a balancing issue or fear of riding a bike alone, tandem helps to take a ride with a partner and can enjoy the ride. Balancing, braking, gear shifting, and controlling can be done by a single person. Sometimes it’s risky to take a ride on the bike for a person who is not perfect, so tandem bikes prevent this risk by allowing another person to take control of the bike. Tandem has a greater aerodynamic advantage and consists of two pedals powered by two persons, hence the tandems are faster and far better than conventional bikes. These are lighter in weight and weigh less than two bikes. Less spare parts and less expensive than owning two bikes.
