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.

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

After the ITR 2020 in France Carl & Julie Mattson are riding to Bordeaux, staying two nights then going by train to Nantes.    We will then ride the Atlantic Route 1 to the Spanish Boarder for 18 days.  This is a self supported ride, 40-50km per day, no long range reservations, eat when we are hungary, sleep when we are tired, enjoy the towns, the sights and the sea side.  Tandems and single bikes are welcome to join us for as short or long as you wish.   Carlmatt@aol.com

December 2019 Report

The Taunton group met at the Walnut Tree at North Petherton for their Christmas Meal and ride – a record number of 40 people attended the meal.  

The fancy dress/decorated tandem competition is always amazing. Rob and Sally stole the show dressed as oven ready turkeys. They cycled the 18 mile route and must’ve roasted! Other costumes included Christmas trees with flashing lights, reindeers, and of course Santa himself.

Coffee and biscuits is a great way to start then Ian led the ride with daughter-in-law Sarah as his stoker to provide much needed pedal power - Lisa had just had a replacement shoulder operation and will be back in action later in the year.  Heavy rain delayed the start but fortunately the sun came out as 14 tandems and 2 solos cycled to North Newton. We then continued across the levels and up the ‘steep’ hill into North Curry where we re-grouped.  From there we made our way to Burrowbridge and then alongside a very high River Parrett up to Huntworth and back to North Petherton.  A lovely ride with lots of friendly chatting and numerous comments from those watching us pass by.  Thanks must go to Richard and Michelle for keeping the group together.

The Christmas Meal was as good as always and it’s lovely to see so many people attend. The trophy for the most rides done in the year was awarded to Nick and Rachel who rode 9 out of the 11 rides in 2019, including the successful 100 mile Tour de Dartmoor weekend organised by Andy and Anita with help from Karl and Lisa. The Christmas quiz was won by Tim and Mary and Ian and Lisa were presented with gifts in appreciation of their work as Regional Officers.

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.
