2. I've always been terrified of tandem bikes. I like to be under my own steam.

3. Don't worry. My wife just puts her feet up and lets me do the work.

 

Actually, the thing weighs more than 70lbs. It takes us both to get up a hill - sometimes standing. Down hill she keeps trying to grab for the hand brakes (there aren't any in back). I keep threatening to put some brake handles on her bar just as a placebo. The drum brake in the back (yes, drum) is more than adequate to stop the bike.

4. They make them for dogs.

I have a set for my girl, Cleo. (I thought she should carry her own food and water when we go hiking in the canyons.) She hates them, and goes motionless when I put them on her.
