- Southern STW Tandem meet/weekend, anyone interested?
Missed last years STW tandem meet up in Yorkshire, is anyone interested in a southern version later in the summer?
Happy to lead the rides, 20 years of mtb tandem riding for us so got plenty of experience on what works/suits best a tandem ride. I’m based north of Portsmouth with loads of riding on my doorstep, South Downs, North Downs and plenty quality and quiet stuff between the two.Posted 4 years ago
Not sure on dates as just an initial idea, lets throw a few about and see what suits the majority. Hows about late august(maybe bank holiday)/early september as a starter?
On the plus side, riding can be all weather as I have sandy, chalky and clay based trails in different directions from mine so can ride whatever dependant on weather conditions.Posted 4 years agoyesiamtomMember
bugpowder…I’m in a similar position to ononeorange. I’ve been mtbing for 6 years now but the girlfriend has only really ridden the tandem. Is there any chance you could show me some routes (mapmyride or similar if you use those?) so I can try them out. A lot of my own mtb routes are tight and twisty and not suitable for a tandem.
Are there lots of mtb tandems in the hampshire area? It would be great to do some regular rides.Posted 4 years ago
ononeorange – don’t worry about being newbies. We had a complete newbie couple on the Northern tandem meet. They had borrowed a tandem for the weekend and it was the first time for both pilot and stoker.Posted 4 years ago
Everyone just looked out for each other and the emphasis is on fun, fun, fun 🙂
Been a bit slack on keeping up to date with this over the last few days.
ononeorange, as Bunnyhop said newbies are welcome, come along, tandems are about the challenge and having fun
Come on you guys, come down south, (schmiken 2 1/2hrs from mine to L’boro), the riding is good and if you cant then keep me in the loop for a central/welsh meet as we are more than willing to travel to meet.Posted 4 years ago
