Aren't Tandems Hard to Ride?

Farther & Faster with less Work

Most cyclists first learn about a tandem’s speed when riding behind one on an organized ride. Then, we notice that even while single bikers are struggling to keep up, the tandem’s riders are sharing a normal conversation. When confronted with this paradox of speed and leisure, most people assume the tandem’s owners must be incredibly fit. After all, cycling can’t be this efficient, there must be a catch. But that’s what it’s like on a tandem, you can ride faster and farther with less work.
