Join Us for a Tandem Bicycle Adventure

We invite you to join us on a very memorable vacation. There is simply nothing that can compare to the fun, camaraderie and adventure of a cycling vacation with other tandem riders. Many of our customers tell us, "This was the best vacation we have ever had."

Tandem Only Bicycle Tours

Welcome! Tandem Bicycle Tours, Inc., is a touring company that specializes in bike vacations for tandem cyclists. With more than 20 years of tandem experience, Lynn Dexter & Patrick Gibbons are the founders of a very special bike shop called Tandem Cycle Works of Colorado. We opened the shop because of our love of tandem cycling. In 2006 we began leading tandems-only tours to share the fun of tandem riding with our customers. 

In 2014, Tandem Cycle Works was sold to new owners so that we could focus more on our tours. We hope to share our passion for tandem travels with you and other cyclists. To learn more, please feel free to contact us to discover the truly special and unique experience of a bike vacation with other tandem couples just like you!
