We are the club for all tandemists and would-be tandemists! If you are thinking of getting a tandem or you already know the joys of sharing a bike, congratulations you have reached the right place.

We have 3000 members in the UK and around the world with 40 Regional Officers who organise Tandem Club activities locally.

We run three Club rallies every year; two in the UK and one in another country. Details in the Club's bi-monthly Journal and Major TC Events and the What's On Guide. A wonderful way to holiday with your tandem and ride with friends.
