"We had 'The Tandem Experience', a really excellent introduction to riding a bicycle made for two. Very thorough training on technique for riding a tandem (hint: it's quite different to a normal bike), then a whole day hire of a touring tandem, with a very pleasant 25 mile circular route map supplied. Bike was very good quality, and training unhurried and well delivered. Highly recommended, if you're thinking of trying out a tandem!"James McRae, Local Guide - Google Review
A common question and one that we do take seriously as it makes the difference of riding a Tandem safely and for long term enjoyment.
