We are the Surrey and Sussex regional group of the Tandem Club. The Tandem Club provides a social framework for Tandemists throughout Great Britain and many other areas of the world. If you are new to tandeming, or are just thinking about the possibilities, visit the Tandem Club website for further information and advice.
The Surrey and Sussex regional group caters for tandemists in the RH(Redhill), BN(Brighton) and CR(Croydon) postcode areas, though we do of course welcome riders from all areas.
Rides are normally on the second Sunday of the month - we maintain a calendar listing the groups rides, along with those of the Kent region and the national and international Tandem Club events. Riders may also be interested in the rides organised by the Kent region which are often in or close to our area.
Coffee breaks, pub lunches, tea stops and picnics are high up on most tandemists' agenda, and we are no exception! Most rides feature a pub lunch, and we try to have a tea and cake stop in the afternoon. Typical ride length is 35-45 miles. Our group has riders of all levels of ability and experience, including families. The aim is an enjoyable day's riding along quiet roads with interesting countryside and good company. They are not training sessions! In addition to the Sunday rides, there is the opportunity to participate in many other Tandem Club events, including National and International Rallies.
We hope, and are sure, you will get much pleasure and fun from joining us. You will meet new friends, all of whom share a love of cycling, good company and good food!
We aim to cover the whole region, however Surrey and Sussex is a large area - if you would like to organise a ride near you, ring our regional officer (Philip Ingram 01903 205405) who will publicise it in the Runs List on this site, the Tandem Club web site and the runs list mailshot.
