Over the years I've conducted a few polls that seek to quantify how many folks own and ride tandems off-road. At least among the internet dwellers, it would appear as though somewhere between 15 - 19% of the very active folks who own, ride, and discuss tandems on the internet have an active interest in off-road tandeming. Within that segment, perhaps 10% spend the majority of their riding time on tandems off-road.
As another indicator, I host an off-road tandem enthusiasts list at YahooGroups called Double_Forte. We have something over 250 subscribers and there are perhaps 20 folks who are very active posters to the list who, for those who have identified themselves in our Rogue's Gallery, reside in the US, Canada, France, Germany, the UK, Netherlands, Sweden, Belguim, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, and Israel. I'm sure there are several other countries represented by folks who prefer to merely lurk on the list.
It goes without saying, yes, we have been off-road tandem owners and riders since 1999.
