Well, 6 or seven miles would probably be more of a workout.

But thats where work is.

Great to see men who are secure enough to do this kind of thing, despite the laughter. You go, guys.

They won't be laughing when they can't afford to buy gas, now will they????


Blessings to you both and don't let anyone dissuade you from doing the "right thing".

Thanks. We just cant see starting our cars to go such a short distance.

And if we can get a few laughs in the process, even better.

Re: Me and my buddy ride a tandem bicycle to work.
Yeah and those fatass-gut the size of quadruplets-coal miner HE-MAN (ha,yeah right)types WISH they could get on a bike and actually make it go for more than two feet before falling over like a two-year-old girl. Me and my Specialized mountainbike can go over stuff that would leave most SUV's and 4x4 dead in their tracks. Personally I'd get individual bikes as it gives you more control on the road, especially for getting out of the way of dumfux on their cellphones that THINK they know how to drive those BIGASS trucks. They'll be laughing all right when gas goes to 4 bucks a gallon.
 Quoting: bikes rule! 13730


True, there are some control issues on a tandem bike.

It takes some getting used to.

They certainly are not as controllable as single seat bikes.

Since we started riding that thing, we never even think of taking the car to work, unless the weather is just so bad that it isnt possible.

And we have ridden it in the rain to work, and for some reason, the guys at work seem to think that arriving on that thing in the rain is even funnier.

If you could picture my co-worker (the back-seater), holding an umbrella as we pull up to the site......

Re: Me and my buddy ride a tandem bicycle to work.
If more Americans did what you and your co-worker were doing and rode a bicycle to work - there would be much less of a gasoline crisis that we live with - and fewer young Americans having to go off and fight the oil baron wars.

The mass media/Madison Avenue tells us the macho male (coal miner) should fire up his Humvee and drive off two miles down the road to work to command the envy and respect of his co-workers.

You two bike guys are going so much against the grain of the "American Idol" - excessively managed perceptions of the American "normal" and American "ideal" - that your bike strikes people as funny/odd/off the norm - worthy of a giggle at.

In actuality they should be laughing at the 170lb guy who takes a 5,000lb Humvee to work while getting 3.6 MPG.
The thought of the sight of that should make people piss themselves while coming unglued - laughing.

Good point! Because that really is preposterous!

Hey OP, good for you, I am glad you guys are riding your bike and having fun with it too. Gives the coworkers something to talk about and a laugh at work always makes the day go better. Not only are you saving money and wear and tear on the car, but you are providing an important social function as well! Keep up the good work!

and, this thread made me laugh too! So you see, you are doing the right thing and reaching many people, soon, you will be famous, starting with your job, everyone knows who you are there now, then, everyone on GLP will know about you and your tandem excursions, next . . . . . ?

Why do people find tandem bicycles so funny?

My buddy lives down the block from me, and we take a tandem bicycle to work.

Work is about 2 miles away.

The folks at work seem to think that it is really funny.

Any thoughts on this?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 365413

They are laughing because the only "guys" that would dare ride tandem are gay these days. Other than that your only biycle buddy company is Spongebob and Patricklmaolaugh

that reminds me of something the guys from Dumb and Dumber would do, especially the part about the rain.

good stuff to not waste fuels, but on a tandem bike is just hilarious! get your own bikes! it won't waste any fuel either!

bump for two men secure enough in their sexuality to ride a tandem bike to a coal mine.

At the end of the day, Americans do have a sense of humor.

When I lived 1/2 mile from work and walked to work, it almost took a whole year for co-workers to get used to it. If it was slightly raining, they'd offer me a ride and feel very sorry for me. Ordinary people are very strange.

How close together are the seats, and do you wear underwear while riding?


Is it pedal powered, or hip-thrust powered?

I've walked to work for the last twenty years, wherever I worked and wherever I lived. I'm glad I don't have to explain myself all the time! I agree, 'ordinary' people are very strange. Luckily I don't have much interaction with them! :-) I'd be bored to tears.
