Easter 2008 UK Tandem Rally

Arnside Youth Hostel,

Arnside, Cumbria, England

Friday, 21st March 2008 - Monday, 24th March 2008

The Event




More than 60 people attended the rally, which was based at Arnside, Cumbria in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Youth Hostel staff were very friendly and provided excellent meals.



Each day a long and short ride was offered.



The weather throughout the weekend was very cold and for the first two days was also very windy. Rain was forecast for each day but in the event, very little rain fell whilst people were cycling. There was plenty of sunshine between the cloudy spells.
