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.
