Ride Your Way to a Better Body

Tandem cycling just might be the best way to exercise
with a partner. Unlike other activities (like running)
where twosomes of different levels can slow one person
down, doubling up on a bike is a breeze. The stronger
rider sits up front and does all the shifting, steering,
braking, and heavy pedaling;
the weaker cyclist rides in
back and kicks in extra power. Take the effort level to a
moderate intensity and you'll both burn about 500 calories
an hour. We guarantee you'll pick up the rhythm
instantly-even if the last bike you rode had a banana seat.
