Description

Description: Welcome to the Waypoint Adventure's Tandem Cycling Program. The group will work together to cycle the back roads and bike paths of Massachusetts. Participants are encouraged to bring lunch and socialize on the trail and during breaks. We have a variety of bikes that offer different amounts of support. We will match up two riders (a Captain and a Stoker) The Captain will be the leader and the Stoker is the other half of the team, who works with the Captain to enjoy the adventure of tandem cycling.  Some of our bikes are more traditional upright bicycles that require teamwork and balance.  We also have other models that are side by side or recumbent (low to the ground) tandems. Some have two wheels and require more balance, while others are quite sturdy and more supportive with three wheels and supportive seats. If you’d like to give small group tandem cycling a try, give us a call - we’d love to try to find a bike that might work for you. The experience will be about finding the right amount of support in a bike and teammate and working together as a group. The adventure will go from there.
