Tandem Bicycles - Bikes For 2 Riders
Tandem bicycles are bikes for 2 riders. A standard tandem bicycle is in an inline configuration with a "Captain" on the front seat who maneuvers and controls the bike and a "Stoker" in the back seat who contributes to pedaling power. Standard tandem bicycles allow an able-bodied captain to ride in front with a stoker with disability in the back seat.
Alternative tandem bicycles place the able-bodied person in the back seat to allow the person with disabilities to ride in front where they may feel more in control and included in the ride.
Tandem bicycles may also have a side-by-side configuration. This option may provide a more stable and safe ride in cases where a Captain is smaller than the Stoker.
Electric Assist: Tandem bicycles may have an electric assist option. Tandem bicycles have double the pedaling power with 2 riders; but in some cases where the rider with disability is unable to provide as much power, the addition of electric assist can greatly improve the riding experience.
