Sharing the joy of cycling with your family is not always easy, children ride at varying speeds, their road sense limits where you can take them and, the dreaded, ‘I can’t go any further’, when you’re miles from home can put even the most hardened parent off. With a tandem these obstacles are removed, you can progress at a sensible pace, thus undertaking longer journeys. Meanwhile, the child still benefits from the physical exertion and the sense of adventure cycling provides, and you can get to where you want to go. Perfect family harmony!
Much scientific research supports the benefits of regular exercise, particularly the low impact, cardio vascular approaches like cycling. Such benefits are typically physical, but can be mental and even spiritual. Unfortunately, many disabilities make exercising difficult, but riding a tandem, where someone else is responsible for balance and control, can be practicable, offering the physiological benefits of exercise and the simple pleasure of ‘getting some fresh air’ in good company.
Keeping fit and healthy has never seemed so important, our daily lives tend to be more sedentary than they were a few decades ago. Being able to get out and enjoy exercise with someone, even if your fitness levels are vastly different, is something that a tandem can provide.
They say it’s all about the Journey. Well, there are few better ways to enjoy the journey than by bike! Our tandems provide a great platform for long day rides or multi-day, self-supported tours. Being able to share the joy of the journey, just makes it all the more special.
Cycling is our favoured mode of transport, but sometimes time and distance constraints require the use of alternative methods of transport. We appreciated this need and design products that are both manageable and easy to transport and store.
