The Evergreen Tandem Club has been promoting the joy of tandem riding since 2001. We are a collection of tandem enthusiasts who love to ride in a variety of locations sharing the adventure with others. Our goal is to provide, sponsor and support tandem bicycling events throughout the Pacific Northwest. Centered in the greater Seattle area, we reach from Vancouver, BC to Olympia, WA and as far east as Bend, OR. Our members include recreational riders, exercise enthusiasts and racers. We post member-led rides, workshops and social events that appeal to those who ride and are interested in tandems at just about any level. Our rides are open to everyone, so come and join our club so we can ride together!
Evergreen tandem rides are open to Meet Up members who ride tandem or want to learn about tandem riding. Due to insurance regulations, MeetUp members may ride ONE TIME with ETC before becoming paid members to enjoy the benefits and safety of riding with a group. The cost of membership is $25 per year for both captain and stoker.
Today at Jeff and Louise's wonderful presentation about self-supported touring in Europe several ETC folks asked about the tours we are leading this year through our not-for-profit tour company, Pegasus Bike Tours. There are 2 in particular that are still open which we believe are especially suited to tandems. The first is our Oregon Over and Back Tour at the end of July. We led this tour from our tandem for COGS (Cyclists of Greater Seattle). The other is our 4 - Day Fixed Base Chehalis Weekend Tour over Labor Day Weekend. We provide a long and short route each of the 4 days. All tours are fully supported. Check them out at http://www.pegasusbiketours.com/.
