Hello Tandem Riders,

PedalSport is celebrating our 25th Anniversary! As we have sold tandems since the day we opened in 1992, it only seems fitting to offer a fun event for all our tandem customers and tandem riding friends. Mark the 22nd of July on your calendars!

Registration is $25 per person, payable to PedalSport. Interac e-transfer is easiest for us. Closing date for registration is July 14th, as the catering arrangements must be prepaid in full.

We will be set up in the east parking lot of the Coast Chilliwack Hotel at 9:00 am on Saturday the 22nd, to get waivers signed and hand out the coveted Tand Fondo wrist bands. A map will be provided but hopefully not needed, as the 75 km route will be very clearly marked, or you can follow the long string of tandems ahead of you. Your wrist band entitles you to a single scoop ice cream cone at the mid-point, even on a sugar cone if you like. Any ice cream orders beyond that will require you to pay the difference. On return to the Coast Hotel, there will be a sumptuous BBQ including beef, chicken or vegetarian burgers and two salads. To keep the food wastage to a minimum, you will need to specify your burger choice on registration. Drinks are at your expense. Food service will begin about 2 and finish by about 5, allowing everyone to drive home in daylight, clean their tandem and get to bed early. We have some very nice prizes and goodies for attendees.

We hope to see lots of new and old friends at this event, so feel free to tell any tandem riders you know. If they send me an email, I will add them to the mailing list for any future tandem events.

Now we just have to hope for a lovely summer day!
