Stickers in Oct/Nov Journal

We are always looking for ways to raise awareness among potential new members who don't know there is a Tandem Club. 

 In the latest copy of the TCJ are 5 Club stickers in a white envelope.  Please put these on your tandem (on all your tandems if you have more than one).  People admiring your tandem out on the road are sure to spot them and ask about the Club. This is your chance to tell them about what we do and get them interested.

If you need more stickers please get in touch.

Thank you for helping to raise awareness of the Tandem Club amongst potential new members.

Hi Stephen - the bike was with the rings when we bought it at c.4 yrs old. Judging by the condition it had had an easy life so I imagine the set-up was original and we've had no work done to it since.

May 2020 Report
The Taunton group is widely spread, some live in deepest Devon and others near Street and Weston super mare. We missed riding tandems as a group but we could get together on Zoom. Nick and Rachel invited us to join them for an evening of intelligent questions, less intelligent answers and a bit of banter. Maybe even a song. We are not great on the old internet technical stuff but some were members of Zoom and had managed to set up some successful small meetings before. I guess many of you are familiar with it: when it works - it works well. 
Many people offered to supply questions. There were seven rounds of ten questions; topics were varied from local geography to music, general knowledge and of course cycling. Scores were unimportant. When marking the quiz, double points and bonus points were awarded willy nilly. There was bound to be a virtual prize but the winner was unknown and unimportant. 
We weren’t sure of the dress code: some wore cycle helmets and Lycra and Nick looked particularly smart in his tuxedo with purple bow tie and cummerbund complimenting his bright pink tandem in the background.
Refreshments were provided although could be better but we did enjoy seeing inside everyone’s home. 
The evening was supported by 14 tandems and 1 solo. (the other half was actually out on his bike). Lots of fun was had and a date was set for the next quiz. No one was going anywhere!
 
Many thanks to Nick and Rachel for organising this get together.

We are hoping to delay this to next year, and are awaiting written confirmation that this is possible from the Rugby Club. Please bear with us: as soon as we know what is happening next year I will send an email to everyone who has booked onto the rally, and let you know your options. Many thanks,
