‘A Bicycle Made for Two’ – Valentine’s Day Deals on Dawes Tandem Bicycles


With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, couples across the UK are searching for fun and unique ways to spend the most romantic day of the year. As the weather is gradually improving and the days are growing longer, mid-February presents a perfect opportunity to get outside after a long winter spent indoors.

Valentine’s Day is regarded by many to be the first sign of spring approaching, with trees starting to blossom and plenty of outdoor trails finally becoming less treacherous and muddy. For these reasons, tandem bicycles have proved to be a popular choice for those looking to do something a bit different – ideal for both keen cyclists and complete beginners. 

What is a tandem bicycle?

Also known as a twin bike, a tandem bicycle is designed to seat two people on a single frame. While the tandem bike does see some action in competitive sport, most twin cycles are used primarily for leisure and relaxation. With plenty of scenic paths and country parks across the country, purchasing a tandem bicycle can offer a unique way to spend Valentine’s Day – perfect for couples who love to stay active.

Each tandem consists of two seats: one for the ‘captain’ who handles the steering and another for the ‘stoker’ or rear-rider. The two sets of pedals are both linked by a timing chain, meaning that teamwork is a must. This extra challenge makes using a tandem bike a fun and rewarding experience, offering something different over conventional cycles.
