Tandem bikes!

My wife and I love Zwift and cycling together. Would be great if we could select a Tandem bike and our joint power/weight be used to move our joint tandem bike! Something a bit novel, especially if the resistance on her turbo kept creeping up because I wasn’t pulling my weight :wink:

This would be fun - although a bit niche.

Maybe niche - but I just logged in for the exact same request. Hear hear. Would be cool to have the odd tandem on a race - flying on the flats and downhills - crawling on the hills…

I can foresee 90-100 kg total weight racers.
How does wattage and speed add up on a tandem?
Do you have two power meters? Strava link?

Zwift could just keep it simple by letting two Zwifters link up
and using their joint weight/power to move the Tandem Avatar.
Could be fun.

This would be a two person meetup.

Please concentrate on necessary things like cleaning up code. This idea is too niche and completely unecessary.

My wife and I would definitely use this feature. We ride together on Zwift every week and it is a little frustrating to stay together on the ride, even when we select ‘no drop’ because of the way it affects the pace. We ride tandem in the real world and it is always more enjoyable than riding individual bikes.

You need to make this a feature!
We are planning some climbs and our kid powers me up the lot of them.

Hi @Mick_Marriott, welcome to the forums. Please don’t make personal attacks, we’re a supportive and encouraging community on Zwift.

You can create a meetup with “keep everyone together” enabled if your riding parter is stronger than you and you won’t get dropped.
