International Tandem Rally 2015
Saturday 22nd. - Saturday 29th. August
The 2015 International Tandem Rally took place in Frymburk. A small village of just over one thousand three hundred people on the bank of Lake Lipno in South Bohemia. (Not to be confused with Frymburk in Klatovy District). Look out for the Church of St. Bartholomew which boasts Gothic, Baroque and Rococco styles. Other local features are a pillory, Marian column, Stone dwarf and the old school. The campsite is located a short walk from the town which boasts a selection of shops, restaurants, small hotels and pensions.
One hundred and fifty members took part camping on a dedicated section of the site adjacent to a toilet/shower block. Some members chose to book some of the campsite mobile homes while others stayed in local hotels and apartments. Hanné, Tereza and Leila from Camping Frymburk made us very welcome and helped to organise the evening entertainment and coach trip. The combination of location on the lake, good weather, a good variety of routes and welcoming staff prompted us to vote this 'The best rally ever!"
We enjoyed the usual range of events including a welcome party on Sunday evening, Coach trip to Český Krumlov (Which the Tandem Club christened Krispy Crumble), Farmer's Goulash evening, Tandem Games and the Last night Party.
The area around Lake Lipno is great for cycling with many off road cycle paths and tracks.
If you missed the rally but would like to visit the area the routes are still available on the Routes Page.
