Hi can anybody recommend insurence for our new tandem
Article currently on the front page of Cycling UK website and will be featured in Cycle Clips 14 August. Should create interest in the Tandem Club and attract new members
The Club is in the Daily Mail Online:

The 48th Annual General Meeting of the Tandem Club was scheduled to take place on Saturday 11 April 2020 at the Easter rally. The Agenda was published in the Tandem Club Journal (vol 288). We said in the TCJ (vol 289) that the 2020 AGM was postponed indefinitely, but of course we don’t know if and when we will be able to hold an AGM in 2020. It may be that we cannot meet together until 2021. In these exceptional circumstances the business usually transacted at the AGM has had to be done elsewhere:
- Club Accounts – the accounts for the year ended 31 October 2019 were published in the April/May Tandem Club Journal (vol 289). The Treasurer has received no comments or queries from members on the accounts.
- Membership fees - As stated in the April/May Tandem Club Journal (vol 289) the annual subscription has been raised from £10 per year to £15 per year.
- Election of Officers – Club Officers are elected at the AGM. Committee members and ex-offico officers have been assumed to continue in role unless they have indicated otherwise. Barry Wilson has served as Chairman since 2015 and has been on the committee since 2011. He had indicated a wish to stand down. Further information about this is given below. Janet Wilson has been on the committee since 2011 and has stood down as an Ordinary Member. If anyone is interested in joining the committee as an ordinary member please contact the Secretary. Our thanks go to Barry and Janet for serving the Club diligently over this period.
After being quoted £200 for cover by a specialist provider I contacted my home insurer, Halifax, who added my new tandem as a specified item (up to £10,000 for any bike I think) for under £20 for the year.
I use a Pendle works well although not easy lifting the tandem up, once on though very secure.
I find having the car leaning away from me helps and the use of a step an asset.
This was our last zoom Taunton group party and it was my turn to choose the theme.
So, I chose a game where we had to remove our adult hats and put on our kids hats. It was a scavenger hunt. Just incase you didn’t know scavenger hunt is a kids game, where you have to find a said item
. . First item to be found was a wine glass or a beer glass. So, as you can imagine there was a very quick response to this request!
I think two of the funniest requests were, a. some cyclists bum cream and b. a pair of the wife’s knickers placed on the chaps head! (I did have a winner for this but wouldn’t want to embarrass him especially as I heard he kept them on for 24hrs.)
It’s been a fun way for us all to stay in touch.
But, I’m thinking, that by now, we are, all of us ZOOMED out.
