Two-Wheeled Socializing

 

continued

Before the Hakkens bought a tandem, he says, they "didn't realize how much quality time you could get [riding together]. We talk about anything and everything." One customer even told him that buying a tandem after his kids were grown was the best thing he could have done for his marriage. "He told me, 'It's like we're dating again.'"

Tandems, he concludes, are eminently sociable. "It's like a long car drive," he says. "You don't turn on the radio. You just sit there and talk."

Midwest Bike & Tandem, 1691 Plymouth (Courtyard Shops). 213-7744. Tues.-Fri. 11 a.m.-7 p.m., Sat. 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Sun.-Mon. by appointment. www.midwesttandems.com    (end of article)
