Reviews

Enjoy a unique cycling experience in the great outdoors along picturesque routes.

Riding a normal, single-rider bicycle is a very rewarding experience, but a tandem bicycle adds a whole new aspect. Compared to a conventional bicycle, a tandem has double the pedalling power and has about the same wind resistance as a conventional bicycle.

Whether you choose to take the lead, pedal at the front and be the 'captain' or are happy to be the 'navigator' and just follow along, tandem cycling is a truly rewarding experience and will be a day to remember.

When you arrive you will be provided with helmets, a bicycle lock, a repair kit and a route guide to get you ready for your tandem cycle. The types of route available vary depending on your chosen location, and can include parks and countryside tracks. Please check on booking.

At some locations a fully refundable deposit is required on booking. There may also be a waiver to sign.

When can you go?

This experience is available on selected weekday and weekend dates, excluding Christmas Day and bank holiday weekends.

How long does this activity last?

Your experience will last between 4 hours and a full day, depending on location.

You need to know

Under 18 year olds must be accompanied by an adult.

You must be reasonably fit and able to ride the tandem. Please wear comfortable cycling clothing.

There are no qualification requirements. You will need to provide photo ID on the day.

This is for a voucher entitling the holder to any of the activities supplied by Activity Superstore up to the value stated.

You and how many others?

This experience is for two people.

Family and friends

Unfortunately, this experience is not suitable for spectators.

We can’t control the weather!

Fantastic Fun

This was a Christmas present and we decided to go on a ride to see the Autumn leaves. When we arrived at the cycle place our Tandem was ready for us fixed at the perfect height. We spent 5 hours cycling along a canal and the Downs link and had a really chilled and relaxing time. We were a bit sore for the next week but it was worth the pain!

Great scenery

The staff at the Lee valley canoe and cycle were very friendly and gave us the option to have 2 separate bikes if we didn't get on with the tandem, however we found it great fun and easy to use, all bikes were in good as new condition and the staff at the centre were very knowledgable on local amenities and facilities and provided us with information on cycle routes and a map of the lee valley country park . We picked the bike up when we were ready and had it for the entire day ( until 5.30pm when the centre closed). The lee valley is a little gem full of beautiful greenery and wildlife. I would recommend the experience to anyone.

Excellent day out

We were given the voucher as a gift. We had super advice by the staff on how to ride the tandem and options of routes to take. Tricky to set off but once coordinated we were away. Great fun, good location with cafes along the way. Easy to access with free parking. Overall a thouroughly enjoyable day out.

Great fun!

This was about a year ago and we absolutely loved it! Had great fun once we got in sync with each other!! And never fell off once either. We did stop for a break by a lovely river for a drink and a snack ( much needed as I hadn't been on a bike for about 8 years!! Hubby took the front as he is a regular cyclist so steered all the way).

Fun Tandem ride

My husband & I rented the tandem bicycle after being bought an activity package for two at Christmas. The staff were friendly & helpful & we kept the bikes for about 4 hours. We spent the four hours peddling around the Forest of Dean & had a thoroughly brilliant, if not tiring, day. We would thoroughly recommend it although probably not for the faint hearted as it wasn't as easy as it seems.

Great fun!

My partner and I went tandem cycling at Lee valley cycle centre and it was great fun, despite some dodgy weather. We went mid-week so it was very quiet along the canal path and stopped for a drink at the Watersports café which was very impressive. Would definitely go again.
