No real term that I use or have heard. It's always either "riding with a team mate or training with a team mate or insert friend for team mate".

Two-up as far as I know means two people (driver + passanger) on a motorbike. There's no equivalent of that in cycling, as far as I know, as on a tandem there is no passive passanger.
