Description

Enjoy a unique cycling experience in the great outdoors along picturesque routes.

Riding a normal, single-rider bicycle is a very rewarding experience, but a tandem bicycle adds a whole new aspect. Compared to a conventional bicycle, a tandem has double the pedalling power and has about the same wind resistance as a conventional bicycle.

Whether you choose to take the lead, pedal at the front and be the 'captain' or are happy to be the 'navigator' and just follow along, tandem cycling is a truly rewarding experience and will be a day to remember.

When you arrive you will be provided with helmets, a bicycle lock, a repair kit and a route guide to get you ready for your tandem cycle. The types of route available vary depending on your chosen location, and can include parks and countryside tracks. Please check on booking.

At some locations a fully refundable deposit is required on booking. There may also be a waiver to sign.

My first tandem

This voucher was a Christmas present given to me by my son's girlfriend, and been dying to try out tandem cycling for a long time. Took a bit of getting use to since I'm left foot strong and my friend is right foot strong. She had to adjust to accommodate me since I was leading, and once mastered we had a terrific time. I am normally use to cycling solo on mountain and road bike, but I have to say that tandem is very enjoyable since you go the same pace as your partner, as well as able to carry on a decent conversation in the process. Tandem is also probably better on paved areas versus muddy pathways though. We did struggle through the bridle ways due to heavy mud and uneven tracks.

A lovely way to spend the afternoon

Had a lovely time hiring the bikes and taking a slow scenic route along the canal, stopping at a great pub for lunch. Could hire additional bikes and had a very enjoyable family day out

Fantastic Fun

This was a Christmas present and we decided to go on a ride to see the Autumn leaves. When we arrived at the cycle place our Tandem was ready for us fixed at the perfect height. We spent 5 hours cycling along a canal and the Downs link and had a really chilled and relaxing time. We were a bit sore for the next week but it was worth the pain!

Fun for a day.

Riding a tandem was something we had always wanted to try and this gift voucher gave us that chance. we are both keen cyclists but a tandem is a completely different experience. Unfortunately we didn’t get on well With the experience but enjoyed the day. A beautiful location and an experience we shall not forget.

Good fun - could be better

This experiance was great fun, the bikes is made of aluminium so it really is fast. The area is lovely with some great pubs and scenery The experiance could have been even better, the farm where you pick up the bike is quite easy to find, however the lady who checks your booking was as much use as a chocolate tea pot, giving as an awful photo copied map that was A) Hard to read as the print was to light B) Didn't show any detailed routes to follow, we asked for more detail but she didn't want to help us. The guy who allocated us the bike was much better and more helpful, a real enthusiast. Please get the farm to give out detailed maps and routes of the area rather than a poorly photocopied map

Good solid bikes

Had a fab time found the route a bit difficult to coordinate at first so we went about an hour out of our way. The main road was too dodgy on a tandem for someone less experienced. Have used one before but much prefer to be on a smooth track

We really enjoyed our day out on the tandem

This was given to me as a present and was very much looking forward to it. Great bike, friendly and efficient service. The day was fun though the map and directions for the large off road loop were not very good and we got hopelessly lost on several occasions resorting to Google maps and guesswork to help.
