Added DiffLines:

* Tested in ''Manga/MonthlyGirlsNozakiKun'' when Nozaki and Sakura are trying to find ways to make tandem-bike rides more romantic as shoujo manga material (because Nozaki's not allowed to show the protagonist giving the heroine a ride on his one-seat bike as it's illegal, and he wants to avoid the "walking with your bike to accompany your beloved home" cliche). Thinking having both of them pedalling isn't romantic enough, Nozaki suggests being the only one to pedal while Sakura just sits in her seat. After a few seconds of trying this out, Sakura demands she pedals again, as she feels guilty for not doing anything.


* This happens quite easily in ''WiiSportsResort'''s Cycling game if one of the riders doesn't know what they're doing or refuses to keep rhythm.

* Team Rocket on ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' uses a lot of pedal-powered vehicles. About half the times they use one, Jessie sits back and lets James and Meowth do all the work, which occasionally leads to disaster.

* Variation with the Chucklemobile from ''Series/{{Chucklevision}}'', where the two brothers supposedly pedal side by side but Paul never bothers, even though Barry can see him not doing it. On some versions of the Chucklemobile prop it doesn't look like there even ''are'' pedals on Paul's side!
