Tandem Day Ripley 11th June

A new date has been fixed for our second club Tandem day: 11th June – our previous date clashed with the Tour de Yorkshire!

2014-09-27 19.31.56

There are six tandems available to hire and these must be booked and paid for in advance

Times Two Tandems are a local company based in Guiseley and the owner is well known to several club members.  They will meet us with the tandems at Ripley and give us a quick lesson in tandem riding. We will take a lovely gentle route to Knaresborough using the Greenway and then onto Boroughbridge and along pretty by ways to Bishop Monkton. Lunch is planned for Boroughbridge where there is a good range of cafes

Tandems Available: There are 6 tandems in total, one small, one large and the other four are medium. The tandems are Orbit hybrid tandems and come with a pannier bag, lock and a small repair kit (there is a small charge to replace inner tubes) The tandems come with flat pedals and half toe clips so you will need to wear flat cycling shoes or trainers. It helps if your tandem partner is a similar size to you but the bikes can be adjusted easily.

Cost: £54 per tandem and free delivery if we can book out a minimum of 5 tandems. This is a discount on the normal price for OCC

Transport: You will need to make your own way to Ripley (the bus 36 goes there from Leeds) or you may be able to share a lift so do let us know if you can offer a lift to someone

If you would like to reserve a tandem please contact Christine Bell christinebell3@btinternet.com

Members who have their own tandem are welcome to meet us at Ripley – unfortunately no additional tandems can be transported by Times Two Tandem in their trailer.
