One of the most beneficial aspects of The Tandem Book is its discussion on how friends and family--even younger children--can all participate in the sport, making it a real group activity. It's hard enough to do things that the kids enjoy, but here's a way to cement family ties and have a real good time doing it.
The book also discusses the fact that tandem riding can build closer bonds for people in relationships, as well as friendships. You can't get any closer to someone during a mutual activity than on the two seats of a tandem!From the Author:
There’s something special about riding together—really together, on a tandem. Tandem riding is unique in bicycling because you share completely the events of the day. From the same perspective, at the same moment. You’re together on the hard grind up the hill, and you share the elation of the descent. When you are riding well, when everything clicks and you’re feeling good, the tandem flies down the road. And through everything, you can enjoy conversation in a way that just isn’t possible on a pair of single bikes.
