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.

We have been working on making the website more mobile phone friendly. Its not complete yet, but hopefully most pages should display better on these devices.

Most of our flights with tandem have been with BA but I agree with Ian that problems are likely to be handler related rather than airline related.   Hope that the trip to Greece goes well, I'm sure you'll have a super time.

We have used just park and parked at St Marks Church in Derby Road which is very close to port and reasonably priced.

Does anyone have any carbon tandem forks they can spare, (1 1/8" ahead stem, cantilever brakes).

Thanks, Brian

I've ridden the entire trail a couple of times and the section from Sale to Southport lots of times solo. My wife and I have ridden the Warrington to Southport section and back on a tandem a couple of times. From Sale onwards the gates really aren't a problem. I don't remember getting st ... more

LA February Tandem ride has been postponed from Sunday 9th until Sunday 16th February. Apologies for having to rearrange the ride but in view of the weather warnings that have been issued for Cumbria I feel that this is the sensible course of action.

January 2020 Report

Richard and Michelle organised the January ride for the Taunton Group starting from Wiveliscombe. Organising a winter ride can have its challenges - namely weather conditions and lack of open cafes. Two days before the ride our concerns were the very wet and muddy lanes, however, on the day it was the cold and ice. Five tandems plus two solos set off towards Bampton on a road that was supposed to have been gritted. One icy patch resulted in a few walking but everyone stayed upright. The Toucan Café, in Bampton, kindly opened early for a coffee stop. Bikes were safely stored and we thawed out before continuing. Although a few were up for following the planned route along the lanes the general view was to stick to the bigger roads so we looped round to The Black Cat and Exeter Inn before heading back to Wiveliscombe where we jumped in the cars and drove to The Globe in Appley for lunch. Nick and Rachel joined us in Bampton for the short loop and then drove on to lunch on the original route and confirmed that we had made the correct decision! Driving on from the pub was also not very pleasant.
