Hi all,

I thought this might be the best place to introduce myself as the new regional organiser for Darlington.

I'm a 40 ish year old chap with a lifelong interest in all things cycling. From downhill racing, through to time-trialling and unicycling, and a fair bit of audax riding too, I've had a go at most things. I came to tandem riding as a means of spending more time on the bikes with my wife. Following a brief test ride we were hooked, and have since progressed to a 2 tandem household.

I'll be looking to contact current members in my area in the next few weeks, with the aim of planning a few rides. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me regarding cycling in the area. Please don't be alarmed if e-mail responses are a little slow....I much prefer tinkering in the shed or riding than sitting at a computer. E-mails are usually checked once or twice a week. 

I look forward to meeting fellow enthusiasts in the future.

 

Dan.

We're looking for ideas on how best to use the Lancashire area of the Tandem Club website.  One suggestion is for members to create Word/pdf documents of rides they have been on and would recommend to other members of the Tandem Club. 
We will create a Word template that can be used as an outline and create an example document - the rest as they say, is up to you!

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.
