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.

Hello, we use ETA for our car and bike breakdown. Fortunately never needed to use the bike breakdown. Used the car breakdown once in the last decade with good service.

We have experience of German Trains (only Bavaria and Hessen states) with our tandems. We have traveled on almost every type of train with our tandems, except ICE (that's their High-Speed train) and never had an issue. They are not S&S tandems but the full 2.1meters or so, and we never had a pro ... more

Alan, We're new to this as you are.  We visited JD Tandems in early July and had a test ride on two models.  Recommend doing that.  We  bought an Orbit from then in August.   Very happy with our choice.

August 2019 Report

Chris and Chris organised the August Ride where an eleventh hour weather reprieve saw 10 tandems and a solo gather at The George Hotel, Castle Cary for pre-ride coffees.

Machines varied from recumbent tandem, “Moustache “ E tandem, lady back elect. assist.model,to a sparkling new “Dolan”.

 Jamie and Becky were welcomed to their inaugural ride with the Taunton group as was David from “Somerset Sight “.

 Negotiating a service company road closure within the first half mile, on foot, the ride followed quiet lanes through Pitcombe to Wincanton. Having crossed over the A303, we continued on unchallenging terrain via South Cheriton to Milborne Port where we just managed to avoid crossing the county boundary into Dorset.   From there we continued through Charlton Horethorne and Compton Pauncefoot to a well-deserved lunch at The Camelot Inn at South Cadbury.

Suitably refreshed we pedalled on through Sparkford and North Barrow to return to Castle Cary for tea and cake, having said goodbye to Rex and Hannah en-route to their onward journey home.

Having largely avoided vehicular traffic and serious fluctuations in elevation a pleasant and easy-ish ride was enjoyed by all in the most benevolent weather.

The riders then returned to the Lime Kiln Inn for Sunday lunch, drinks and general socializing.
