Two people enjoying a Sociable

The Sociable or "Buddy Bike" is a bicycle that supports two riders who sit side by side.

This type of bicycle should not be referred to as a tandem bicycle as "tandem" is defined as: "a group of two or more arranged one behind the other ..."[1]

History[]

The Sociable was invented by Hubert Opperman.[2] In its basic form it has been around for over 100 years. It was originally marketed by the Punnett Cycle Company. Historically it has been used as a courting bike, gentlemen would be able to spend time with young ladies in an activity that allowed closer proximity.[3]
