Come and join us on a bicycle made for two!

We run the following tandem clubs:

Wetherby – Mondays

Harrogate – Tuesdays

York – Tuesdays

Selby – Wednesdays

Wakefield – Wednesdays & Thursdays

Ripon – Thursdays

We meet at 6pm and ride out between April and October. There is usually a pub stop on the way round for a breather and a catch up. We are always looking for more volunteer front riders to pilot the tandems, as well as needing a supply of willing back riders/stokers with disabilities to provide the power!

Please contact us if you are interested in getting involved, it really is great fun!

Each summer we have a cross-country tandem adventure with our volunteers and members. We’ve completed several long-distance rides including the Way of the Roses, the Trans Pennine Trail, Hadrian’s Cycleway, Walney to Wear, Sea to Sea, as well as cycling from Edinburgh to Loch Lomond and Chester to Anglesey.


I’m really enjoying everything about volunteering – the motivation to get out cycling (even in the rain, it’s strangely not as bad as you might think!), the challenge of learning something new, the fantastic company in the pub and at the same time helping other people to enjoy these things too – what’s not to like about that?
