Tandem Bicycle for Ten | Yikes



Such fabulous images! I've never ridden on one of these, have you? Famous Bicycle Built for Two

Have you seen these? These people used to come and do demonstrations in the park across the street from our flat in Cambridge, and I remember their having way wackier designs than these. Still, these are pretty cool, and if I still lived a no-car, all-bike life, I'd want at least one.

Hi Rosemary! Love the post. My husband & I were in Argentina recently (wine country) and we rented a tandem for the day. A GREAT way to visit vineyards. But that old adage applies "if you're not the lead dog, the view never changes" :). Cheers!

Rosemary,
I've never had the pleasure (?) of riding a tandem bicycle but the second image (word press graphic) is so cool.

Yes! We actually owned one and would ride it to school, my sis & I every day. It was great fun, wouldn't mind owning one now. Word of caution though, if you tend to be a "back seat" driver, please ride in front where you will have a more positive outcome to your steering!
