Tandem cycle !!!

Today I read an article on how a couple is using these tandem bikes to help people especially students on not letting there life end through sucide and they have been riding around cities and they have also being professional dancers and by taking session of dance on the journey they have been earning too. and thats why  this my post on tandem bicycle 

The tandem bicycle also known as  twin is a form of bicycle designed to be ridden by more than one person. Tandem refers to the seating arrangement (fore to aft, not side by side), not the number of riders. A bike with two riders side by side is called a sociable.

Tandem bicycles are used for Paralympics  games  with blind  and visually impaired  cyclists riding as stokers with fully sighted captains 
The rear rider starts clipped in while the front rider holds tandem upright For those who can get accustomed to the rear rider always being clipped in, the advantage with this technique will become obvious when trying to start at the foot of a bridge or on a hill. If the tandem team does not practice this, then they often reserve this type of start for when they are faced with a bridge or hill. This technique allows the rear rider to apply continuous power as the front rider steadies the tandem during the initial take-off. This reduces the risk of the tandem toppling over due to starting on an incline. The rear rider will continue to pedal as the front rider attempts to get the foot used for steadying the tandem clipped into the pedal.
