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 a VW California - same as a VW Transporter, but with a lifting roof making a double bed inside a pop-up tent. We are on the cusp of buying a Thorn triplet for the school run (boys aged 4 and 5). I have been practicing getting the new triplet onto the roof by using our engagement Thorn Raven ... more

We've flown with EasyJet and Jet2 in Europe without any problems we used to pack the tandem (a Dawes Discovery Twin, no couplings) in a big bag padded with cardboard and was probably no longer than a surfboard once the wheels and racks were removed and placed alongside the frame, no one has question ... more

Has anyone got an e-bike insured? I had the TSB cover from the original post but the last time I renewed I noticed e-bikes were specifically excluded from my policy.

June 2019 Report

Len and Gill Hampson organised their first ride for the group in June which started and finished at the Lime Kiln Inn near Long Sutton.The route wound around the quiet lanes of South Somerset taking the group through beautiful countryside and pretty villages. There was a stop half way round at Hambridge village green where the riders were treated to homemade cake provided by the organisers. The riders then returned to the Lime Kiln Inn for Sunday lunch, drinks and general socializing.

September 2019 Report

James organised the September Taunton group ride which was attended by four tandems and two halves.
Bow garden centre,  between Okehampton and Crediton did us proud for breakfast, and we decided pretty quickly to split into two groups.  The riders and the walkers.  That isn’t walking all the time.  Just when excessively gravitationally challenged.  Andy knows the area well as his workshop, where he makes the wonderful Brook guitars, is close by.  He led the riders whose bikes were powered by dark matter; we, the walkers, plodded on about half an hour behind.
After rather a lot of climbing we reached the Hog and Hedge.  We read the sign: “Pull in and Pig out” and we did just that. 
Now we could lose the height we had gained in the morning.  A very rural ride in excellent company.  We were back before the rain started and nobody mentioned the B word, but I could kill a pint this evening.

July 2019 Report

Clive and Emma organised the July ride for the Taunton Group. Eight tandems and three solos met at the Red Brick Building in Glastonbury to ride across the Somerset Levels.
We set off on the National Cycle Network lanes to Ashcott, Shapwick and Catcott before turning north at Cossington.
We stayed on the lanes passing the peat farms to East Huntspill and then onto a coffee and cake stop at Rich’s Cider Farm. The clouds had cleared and we were all able to enjoy the sunshine at the outside tables.
The return journey took us across the lanes towards Westhay Moor. We all declined the option to stop again at Sweets tearooms and continued through Godney and back to our start point for a lengthy lunch.
