An intangible benefit of being a tandem couple is not only the relationship of captain to stoker, but also the connection you share with other tandem riders. In the late 60s, Honda Motorcycles launched a very successful advertising campaign — “You meet the nicest people on a Honda.” The same can be said of tandem cyclists! Tandeming is by its very nature more social than riding a single bike. You have someone riding along with you every time you take your tandem bike for a spin.
The social aspect of tandem riding is extended when you ride with a group of other tandems. We tend to be some of the most sociable, welcoming, and friendly people you will meet. This makes for very special cycling experiences. At Tandem Cycle Works, we consider ourselves tandem matchmakers, encouraging couples to meet and ride with other tandem teams. This is where the real fun of tandem riding begins!

The Brian & Kirk Saunders Trophy
On May 29,1997 twin brothers, Brian and Kirk Saunders successfully became the first people to ride their tandem bike to the summit of Mount Evans. Well known to locals, the grueling ride tops out at 14,264 feet on a climb that is 28 miles long with approximately 2100m vertical ascent. If you’ve been up it you know it is a true feat of endurance!
