A tandem bicycle has two positions:
- The captain or pilot is on the front of the bike, and has control over gears, steering and brakes as well as providing half the pedal power; and
- The stoker sits on the rear of the bike and provides the other half of the teams speed.
Tandems are easy to ride and most cyclists take very little time to adapt.
Riding as a stoker, or volunteering to be captain is fun and very rewarding, and just takes a few hours out of your day. You will make new friends and improve your fitness!
Exsight has numerous tandem bikes, ranging from flat bar recreation style Apollos to light and fast Cannondale road bike tandems. We also have an electric assisted tandem.
