Two wheel tandem, three wheel tandem or a side-by-side tandem. Which one is most suitable for you?
Next to special needs bicycles for one person, Van Raam manufactures bicycles for multiple people, like wheelchair bikes and tandems. In this article you will learn more about Van Raam’s tandems: the two wheel tandem Twinny, three wheel tandem Twinny Plus, parent-child tandems Kivo and Kivo Plus and the side-by-side tandem Fun2Go + the Funtrain double rider cycle trailer.
If you don’t want to bike alone or are no longer able to bike independently, a tandem could be a good alternative. These special bikes for two people come in various models, types and sizes. We manufacture bicycles as well as tricycles on which you can sit either behind or next to each other. Compare the Van Raam tricycle tandems in the article 'Three tricycle tandems by Van Raam in comparison'.
Bicycling on a tandem will be a fun activity because you are on the bicycle together and it requires teamwork. Both of you decide on the route, speed and breaktimes.
The tandem is suitable for people who are unable to participate in traffic independently. This might be because of a physical disability or a visual handicap.
