The 8th Annual Saranac Lake Tandem Rally
Friday through Sunday, June 16th to June 18th, 2017.
Get on your tandem and ride with us on one of the three scenic routes Saturday and Sunday. With the terrain ranging from rolling to hilly, the rides will be fun for both families and speedsters. Both days have rides ranging from 14 miles to metric centuries. Detailed cue sheets and maps are provided for all rides.
Following the rides, we'll gather for a barbecue and socializing. We'll provide the main course such as BBQ, hamburgers, hot dogs, vegetarian lasagna, vegetarian pizza, etc.; as well as a range of drinks, and picnic necessities.
We ran the Southern Tier Tandem Rally for 17 years, so this will be our 25th tandem rally and will continue the tradition of hosting the best small tandem rally in the country!.
Families join the rides with child stokers as well as trailers with smaller children.
The rides, the barbecue, and the chance to share stories with other tandem pairs, all combine to make a great weekend.
The fun begins Friday! The rally begins Friday afternoon at 3:00 with a 'get-acquainted' 11-19 mile group ride (sign-in starts at 2:30).
There will be a wine and cheese and hors-d'oeurves get-together at 7PM Friday night at our house, rally headquarters.
Saturday and Sunday you will be able to choose from a variety of rides to suit your distance and terrain desires. Following the rides we gather back at our house for an afternoon of socializing.
