The down side of tandeming is that group rides are a drag. Everyone
sees the tandem as a rolling government program and trys to jump on for
the free ride. Some even get angry when you don't do 30 mph. This
aspect can be frustrating. I recommend the tandem for solo rides
without a group over fairly level to rolling terrain. Do this and you
will have a blast.
climbing is slower, but you'll get used to it. Descents are a blast. Just
communicate! Tandeming will certainly teach you how to communicate better, if
you don't you'll not have a tandeming partner!
