tandem tricycle with small front section

Posted By: mary dunn

My partner is blind and therefore I have to go on the front of a tandem. He has done an amount of tandem riding in the past but I have never tried it. The problem is that I am only 5'2" and am too short to cope with any tandem bicycle that we have tried to hire in order to see if I can cope with a tandem.

I know that we could have one built to fit me but the outlay would be too much if I then found that I wasn't confident enough to ride it. I cope ok on a single bike but am not the best cyclist in the world and I am afraid that trying to control a tandem would be scary!

A friend has just suggested a tricycle which I think would be much easier but does anyone know of any way we could try one out to see - given that I am short?

Thanks,
Mary
