TandemClub News

Yesterday Dominic Irvine and Charlie Mitchell smashed the 50 years old tandem record of cycling non stop from Lands End to John O'Groats, setting a time of 45 hrs 11 mins and 2 seconds. Beating the original record by 5 hours. They completed this amazing achievement on an Orbit tandem supplied by JD Tandems.

The Tandem Club is moving to a new membership management system. This operates in conjunction with the Club's website and should make it easier for the TC officers to manage the membership and payments and for the members to join and renew.

The system provides for automatic email renewal reminders and on-line membership form filling in and editing for joining and renewals. Postal renewal forms and reminders will also be sent, but if you can supply us with an email address and allow us to email you this will save the Club time and postage costs. The joining and renewal forms provide a field to fill in your email address. For existing members not yet renewing from emailed renewal requests, please let the membership renewals secretary know your email address if you have not supplied one previously or suspect that the email address we have is out of date. Please email your email address to: with your full name and if possible your membership number.

The system supports payments by Credit/Debit cards, Standing Orders, BACS and cheques. Credit/Debit cards is the best for us as it simplifies our administration.

As well as providing membership joining or renewing, the system offers you the option of adding a TC website login account. This login account will allow you personal access to the members-only areas of the website and simplify filling in forms for events etc. Later on more website features may be provided (as our time permits !).
During the change over you may receive renewal emails and/or forms even if you have already renewed. Please be patient - it will take us some time...

There may be issues during the change over, please let us know of any problems and possible improvements and please bear with us during the change.

We have changed the membership login to use the main website login boxes on the left hand side. For more info please see: /files/members.html
The range of Club clothing is now complete and members will get a 10% discount for a limited period. 
Bike It have offered a 15% discount to members of the Tandem Club.
Details of this and  the Cotswold Outdoor discounts are in the Member's Area of the website.
Do you have a Regional Officer in your area?  If not, why not offer to be one?

Regional Officers act as a local point of contact for the area, welcome new members to the Club and circulate details of rides in the Region.  They do not necessarily lead rides.

A good turn out on an overcast but dry March day.  There were a total of 12 riders which was comprised of 3 tricycles, 2 tandems and 2 solos.
Refreshments were taken at Oliver's Garden Centre, Witham  before we started the ride.
We were going at a decent pace until at 5 miles the newcomers had a puncture but once fixed we were on our way again until we got to the Fitch Way where a  fallen tree blocked our path.  We managed to negotiate the obstacle without too many scratches and were soon on our way again.
The ride finished at Stisted where a leisurely lunch was taken at the lovely Tea Room which sadly is closing soon due to the retirement of the owners.
Everybody made us feel very welcome and we look forward to joining the group again in the near future.
