Come ride with us!

The Eastern Tandem Rally is a volunteer group of tandem cycling enthusiasts who rally together to ride and socialize at tandem events held in the Northeastern United States. It is the oldest organization of its kind in North America, and has sponsored an annual tandem rally continuously since 1973.

The ETR organization currently sponsors several tandem bicycle rallies. For 2015, ETR will sponsor 4 rallies:

  • Our premier event, the Eastern Tandem Rally was held in beautiful Gettysburg, Pennsylvania from June 12th to the 14th.
  • The 2016 Eastern Tandem Rally is scheduled for July 29-31, 2016 at Hobart & William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York (the Finger Lakes!).
  • We are looking for proposals for the 2017 Eastern Tandem Rally. We will accept ETR proposals until December 31, 2015.
  • We co-sponsored the Spring Thaw with the Potomac Pedalers in Cambridge, Maryland from April 30th to May 3rd.
  • MATES was held in Clinton, New Jersey from August 7th to the 9th.
  • We are looking for proposals to host the 2016 MATES Rally. Please submit any ideas or proposals ASAP to President@EasternTandemRally.org.
  • The Eastern Tandem Off Road (ETOR) rally will be held from October 23 – 25 at Allegrippis Trails at Raystown Lake in Hesston, Pennsylvania.
