A tandem bike is a bike that is designed to be ridden by two or more people. Most tandem bikes are for two riders, but the world record holder fits thirty-five people. That’s a lot of hippies. Seating is an important consideration when riding on a tandem bike. You should always try to sit in the back. The person in the front seat has to steer and peddle continuously. If you’re in the second seat, you can stop peddling once you get enough momentum. As long as the person in front doesn’t notice, you’re free to relax and enjoy the scenery. Every now and then you will see a guy riding a tandem bike by himself. He is either the loneliest person on the planet or his friend fell off. It doesn’t matter which one it is, you’re still required to point a finger and make fun of him.
