Overview

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.

This voucher was a Christmas present given to me by my son's girlfriend, and been dying to try out tandem cycling for a long time. Took a bit of getting use to since I'm left foot strong and my friend is right foot strong. She had to adjust to accommodate me since I was leading, and once mastered we had a terrific time. I am normally use to cycling solo on mountain and road bike, but I have to say that tandem is very enjoyable since you go the same pace as your partner, as well as able to carry on a decent conversation in the process. Tandem is also probably better on paved areas versus muddy pathways though. We did struggle through the bridle ways due to heavy mud and uneven tracks.

Was bought for us as a gift, always wanted to try a tandem. Staff very friendly and helpful, made adjustments to bike to suit us and advised us of suitable route to take. Location is very good next to the river, no cars, good options to stop for lunch, very enjoyable to have the bike hire for the whole day.

Had a lovely time hiring the bikes and taking a slow scenic route along the canal, stopping at a great pub for lunch. Could hire additional bikes and had a very enjoyable family day out

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!

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.

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.

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.

This was given to me as a present and was very much looking forward to it. Great bike, friendly and efficient service. The day was fun though the map and directions for the large off road loop were not very good and we got hopelessly lost on several occasions resorting to Google maps and guesswork to help.
